Junior Achievement of Arkansas, Inc.
Junior Achievement inspires and prepares youth to succeed in a global economy.
JA’s K-12 programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs that make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities. JA’s unique approach allows volunteers from the business community to deliver our curriculum while sharing their life and career experiences with students. Embodying the heart of JA, classroom volunteers transform the key concepts of our lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world.
