Junior Achievement is a volunteer driven organization that provides relevant, authentic, and experiential financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programs to K-12 students of the greater Austin area. Through partnerships with the business and education communities, we bring academics to life by creating meaningful learning experiences. Together, we aim to break down traditional barriers and give every student unparalleled connectivity to the business world, to fuel students' passion for future success and discover the power of their education. Our approach connects local schools with trained volunteers from the business community, who deliver our programs while sharing their own educational and career experiences with students. These volunteers deliver key concepts of JA's lessons while providing personal examples to foster a culture of academic achievement and encourage students to set, pursue and achieve personal career goals.
