Junior Achievement

We are a growing number of volunteers, educators, parents, and contributors who reach out to more than 4 million students, each year, in grades K-12. Together, we believe there's a lot that's right with today's kids. Kids crave opportunity. Kids want to be successful. And kids dream big about the future. Really big. We like that.

We are the passionate people behind a movement that seeks to educate and inspire young people to value free enterprise, business and economics to improve the quality of their lives. Located in beautiful Colorado Springs, Junior Achievement's National Headquarters and Service Center provides support for 156 local offices that carry out the mission. Our international affiliate serves more than 100 countries with offices around the world.

Altogether, Junior Achievement reaches approximately 5.2 million students worldwide. Through age-appropriate curricula, Junior Achievement programs begin at the elementary school level, teaching children how they can impact the world around them as individuals, workers and consumers. Junior Achievement programs continue through the middle and high school grades, preparing students for future economic and workforce issues they'll face.
