Junior Achievement: Empowering young people to own their economic success.

Junior Achievement of Oregon and SW Washington’s purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Junior Achievement reaches almost 45,000 students annually in relevant, hands-on learning experiences that teach young people to manage their money, plan for their economic future, own their own business, and develop readiness for careers or college.

Junior Achievement associates are known for their passion for the JA mission that brings together business and education to work with students in kindergarten through high school so they are empowered to own their economic success. Members of the JA team interact with community leaders who support JA with their time, treasure, and talent. Junior Achievement of Oregon and SW Washington offers a collaborative, inclusive work environment and the opportunity to impact the lives of young people in our community.

JA BizTown is a mini town in which kids discover how the “real world” works. After a curriculum that is taught in the classroom, students come to JA BizTown (for a one day field trip) and become citizens, where they work in one of 19 businesses, make personal financial decisions, hold business meetings, pay taxes and donate to a non-profit organization. Students learn how to become a citizen, how an economy works, how to open a bank account, how to apply for a job and run a successful business. This interactive, project based program not only teaches students how to manage their own personal finances and the importance of becoming a successful professional in a community, but it also empowers them to take responsibility for their professional and educational futures.
