Today’s students are 25% of our population & 100% of our future!

100% of the students at schools that request JA in a Day begin learning about financial literacy & business through Junior Achievement and the help of volunteers.

Volunteers are needed to teach the Junior Achievement curriculum at area schools.

“JA in a Day” is a special Junior Achievement delivery method that facilitates the partnership between businesses and an elementary school. Like all JA programs, business volunteers involved in this program help to educate and inspire youth about free enterprise, business, and economics.
