JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT
Junior Achievement helps kids dream. JA also brings relevance to those dreams by providing the tools kids need to make their dreams become reality.

Since 1919, Junior Achievement has made an impact on more than 30 million young people by educating and inspiring them to value free enterprise, business and economics to improve the quality of their lives.

Junior Achievement currently reaches more than 3.5 million students across America through programs in grades K-12. JA's ultimate mission is to ensure that every child in America has a fundamental understanding of the free enterprise system so that they are prepared to meet the challenges of the global economy.

Junior Achievement has 163 offices in the United States, serving 20,000 communities. We also span the globe with offices in 97 countries. Our international programs provide help and business guidance for students from Argentina to Western Samoa. Through our volunteers, we empower young people and teach them essential lessons about building careers and valuing free enterprise. Junior Achievement is building a better world, one student at a time.
