With the support of educators and community volunteers, Junior Achievement programs serve thousands of students in St. Joseph County every year. These JA experiences are igniting the spark in young people to experience and realize the opportunities and realities of work in a 21st century global marketplace. During the 2015-2016 school year, 280 community volunteers partnered with 300 classrooms to impact almost 7,000 students with JA programs.
JA is a partnership between the business and education communities that prepares youth for economically independent futures based on strong economic knowledge and solid personal financial management skills.
We want to thank all of the teachers who invite us into their classrooms, our terrific volunteers who use their own experience and expertise to make the JA lessons come alive, and our generous contributors who provide the funding to help us open our students' minds to their potential!
