"Junior Achievement is a good program because it helps me make the right choices in the future and makes me interested in a job that I will like. It teaches me strategies on how to get a job and proper manners on how I should act in an interview."

Unfortunately, the demand for Junior Achievement is far greater than we are currently able to provide. Each year, an increasing number of educators and parents ask us for our programs. As a result, we have developed a strategic plan that will strive to dramatically increase the number of classrooms reached, but we can’t do it without your help.
-Help us reach more kids, endless opportunity awaits every child in America…You can invest in our future today!
"Junior Achievement provides instruction on realistic things that are going on in this world and the kids open up and begin to believe in themselves."
