About Us

Junior Achievement programming came to Rhode Island in 1921 and has been a vital resource to Rhode Island youth and the business and education communities ever since. With the assistance of twenty-two local business leaders, the state organization formally incorporated into Junior Achievement of Rhode Island, Inc. in 1949 in order to maintain a permanent, long-term presence in the state.  Since then, Junior Achievement of Rhode Island's purpose has been to educate and inspire young people to value free enterprise and understand business and economics to improve the quality of their lives.

In our 96 years in Rhode Island, we have reached more than 400,000 K-12 students. During the 2015-2016 year, JA programs reached nearly 7,000 students, of which 72% were in Rhode Island's urban and urban-ring school districts.
