Junior Achievement’s volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students to develop career and college readiness skills to reach their potential. With the help of more than 826 volunteers in 640 classrooms during the 2012-13 school year, 13,379 JA students connected the relevancy of what they were learning in school to the real world of work.
JA curriculum is
- aligned with common core state standards
- meets financial literacy requirements of Amended Ohio Senate Bill 311
- encourages creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communications skills
- teaches key economic, business and money management concepts that empower students to own their economic success in a 21st global marketplace.
The demand for Junior Achievement has never been greater. Classes are provided at no charge to school districts in Stark, Tuscarawas and Carroll counties served by Junior Achievement of East Central Ohio.
