About Us

At Junior Achievement, we give volunteers the opportunity to empower the students of Greater Cleveland to own their future economic success. 


Our mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.

Our vision is to be recognized by businesses, educators, and policy makers as the thought leader and deliverer of relevant, responsive, and innovative programs which build young people's capacity to spur economic development and contribute to Cleveland's global competitiveness. 

Our three pillars are career readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy. All of our programs focus on one or more of these three essential economic elements. 


Junior Achievement enlists volunteers to teach our curriculum in schools. Our lessons have been developed by professional educators but are accessible enough to be taught by volunteers who have never led a classroom before.


Why do we have volunteers teach our programs instead of just letting teachers do it? Because every person's journey to a successful career is different. We provide you with the materials, but you tell your own professional story and make each lesson unique. You get the chance to be a mentor, and possibly inspire a young person to follow in your footsteps and pursue a career that he or she never knew existed before meeting you.
