Junior Achievement strives to empower youth (K-12) to own their economic success and get them real world ready! Our key content areas of empowerment are Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship and Work Readiness. We have reached and continue to exceed our goal of impacting over 81,500 students in San Diego during the 2017-2018 school year!

What is a JA Day?

JA in a Day is a unique initiative that allows volunteers to teach the lessons of Junior Achievement's elementary school programs in an effective one-day effort. During the course of JA in a Day, students learn about various aspects of financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. For instance, students in the second grade learn about "Our Community" and will have a chance to see how money moves through a community, creating jobs and generating tax proceeds that pay for schools, parks and streets. In the first grade, the students learn about “Our Families.”  The JA curriculum introduces students to family members' jobs and how professional careers contribute to the well-being of the family.

What do Junior Achievement Volunteer teach students?

 JA programs teach students important real-world concepts in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship.

What is expected of the JA volunteer? 

The time commitment included one hour training prior to the JA Day.  Most JA Days are during the week from 8am to 1pm.
