Across northern Indiana, every year Junior Achievement is empowering more than 115,000 young people to own their economic success by enhancing the relevancy of education.

“Fort Wayne has a tradition of amazing year-round celebrations, and JA is proud to be the selected beneficiary of this new summer festival to Headwaters Park,” says Lena Yarian, President, Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana. “The Wine & Beer Festival is a way for adults to gather in support of JA’s mission of preparing young people for the opportunities and realities of work in the 21st century global marketplace.”

Serving more than 115,000 pre-kindergarten through high school students in a 30-county area each year, Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana is dedicated to educating and inspiring young people to succeed in a global economy. With the support of more than 4,000 educators and 7,000 positive adult role models who volunteer their time, Junior Achievement’s in-school, JA BizTown, and JA Finance Park economic education programs focus on three key content areas: work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy. These experiences empower young people to own their future economic success.
