Educators... Enhance your students' education by adding a JA Program to their curriculum!
Junior Achievement's programs are designed to empower students from kindergarten through 12th grade to own their economic success. They are taught by trained volunteer role models from the local community - including business professionals, parents, and college students - using professionally designed and rigorously evaluated curriculum materials. Programs are typically presented by JA's volunteers for 30-45 minutes each week for five to seven weeks, with the exact time commitments dependent upon the grade level of the students.
JA programs give students the opportunity to practice cooperation, teamwork, decision-making, and leadership skills through numerous exciting hands-on activities. The programs fully correlate with state educational content standards and have been endorsed by many local Superintendents and educators. All JA program focus on the key content areas of entrepreneurship, work readiness, and financial literacy.
Junior Achievement's programs are easy to implement, and educators will receive ongoing support from the JA staff throughout the program.
JA is currently running in the following Berks and Lehigh school districts:
