11/20/2015 - JA

Junior Achievement is the world's largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. JA programs are delivered by corporate and community volunteers, who provide relevant, hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. Today, JA reaches more than 4.6 million students per year in 113 markets across the United States, with an additional 5.6 million students served by operations in 118 other countries worldwide. Junior Achievement USA is a member of JA Worldwide. Visit www.ja.org for more information.

  • Personal Finance Programs: JA offers 18 programs that focus on financial literacy for students in grades K through 12. Most of these programs are delivered by caring professionals from the local business community, many of whom work in the financial services sector, to students at schools in the local community. These proven programs are simple to implement and, due to the generous support of our partners in the business community, free to schools.

  • JA My Way: Made possible with the support of One Main Financial and the Citi Foundation, JA My Way is an interactive online experience that can be found at www.JAMyWay.org. The experience starts with a visual quiz that provides teens with an idea of their personality type. Teens can then explore careers that may best fit their personality. One key feature of the site is My Money, a series of online activities that help kids better understand how to buy a car or pay for college.

  • The Financial Literacy Test Drive: In partnership with American Honda Finance Corporation, JA has launched www.FinancialTestDrive.org, an online quiz where teens can test how prepared they are for the financial responsibility that comes with owning a vehicle. The quiz is part of American Honda Finance Corporation’s support of the re-development of JA Personal Finance®, a blended-learning experience that helps high school students become financially capable.
