Junior Achievement Helps Prepare Today's Students for a Bright Future

Why Junior Achievement?

JA helps students realize that the education they are getting today will help them to have a bright future tomorrow. JA's unique, volunteer delivered programs, show them all of the possibilities that lay before them. They realize they can choose different paths; College? A specific trade? Start their own business? Through your participation as an organization or as an individual, these statistics below can begin to change in your community:

> 20% of U.S. students will not complete high school on time and earn a diploma.

> 49% of U.S. employers recognize that talent shortages impact their ability to serve clients and customers.

> 36% of Americans say that they have at some point in their lives felt their financial situation was out of control.

> 91% of millennials wish they had greater access to entrepreneurial education programs.
