JA programs have a proven impact, especially when it comes to making the connection between what’s learned in the classroom and life outside it.
Our K-12 Learning Experiences
Junior Achievement learning experiences are designed to be appropriate for all grade levels. Whether learning about “wants” and “needs” in elementary school or how to launch a global startup in 12th grade, students will have a powerful learning experience.
For most of us, managing money, having an occupation, and interacting with business will be a reality. JA learning experiences deliver lessons in financial literacy, work and career readiness, and entrepreneurship so that students will be better prepared for life outside the classroom.
Lesson plans, study guides, worksheets, digital assets, games, videos, and other engaging content help educators and volunteers engage students with JA learning experiences.
