Junior Achievement (JA) gives young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices.
The JA experience helps students envision the possibilities of what they can be by helping them see the value of staying in school. Interactive JA curriculum engages and excites students, leading to stronger critical thinking and decision-making skills and more confidence.
JA programs are delivered by trained corporate and community volunteers who share their skills and personal and professional experiences to make learning come to life. For more information about JA in Northern California, go to janorca or their facebook.
