About Junior Achievement:
For nearly 65 years, Junior Achievement of Arizona (JA) has been preparing millions of Arizona students to succeed in work and life. We’re empowering their futures by giving them the knowledge and skills they need to manage their money, make smart academic, career and economic choices. At the foundation of all our programs is teaching students the ability to think critically.
Delivered by 8,000+ business and community volunteer mentors, our hands-on, age-appropriate programs focus on three key areas: financial literacy, work and career-readiness, and entrepreneurship. Despite massive disruptions in education and life during the last year, JA will continue to reach more than 60,000 students in the 20-21 school year, meeting them wherever and however they are learning today.
JA is shaping the college- and career-readiness conversation, and we play an important role in Arizona’s workforce and economic development. Our programs help students connect what they learn in the classroom to the real world, and demonstrate how learning correlates to earning – knowledge critical to empowering today’s students to be successful, contributing members of society in the future.
Now more than ever, we must invest in today’s young people. We must give them the hope and belief in their future success. We must provide them with the tools and support to navigate these uncertain times and the challenges they’ll face in their futures, too. Hope can't wait. Tomorrow needs us today. Help meet that need.
