Without the support of the community, Junior Achievement could not serve so many Connecticut students.
Without the support of the community, Junior Achievement could not serve so many Connecticut students. Every JA program starts with two things: a classroom and a volunteer. In order to deliver its financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship programming, JA must have strong partnerships with schools, businesses, and community organizations.
The majority of JA’s volunteers come from corporations (large and small), and most of or our programs take place at local schools (public and private). However, we are especially proud of numerous other partnerships that involve non-corporate volunteers, provide special programming to students outside of traditional school classrooms, and/or allow our organization to reach students with more intensive experiences.
