Our goal as an organisation is to better serve the community, and support it with an educated future workforce. In return, we require the support of the community so we can continue as an organization.

This includes finding volunteers from the community who are willing to go into the classrooms. It also means finding business professionals who are willing to serve as board members and support the administrative side of Junior Achievement. And support must also come from businesses and individuals that realize the importance of economic and business education throughout all grade levels.

They not only donate their time and money: they invest in the future of our community.



What do Mark Cuban, Steve Case, Sanjay Gupta, Donna Shalala, and Christina Aguilera all have in common? They are all Junior Achievement alumni who developed an entrepreneurial attitude about their life’s work!

In this landmark book, Larry Farrell, the world’s most experienced authority on researching and teaching entrepreneurship, has partnered with JA to bring their combined vast experience directly to you.
