Getting Ready for the Next 60

For six decades, Junior Achievement has been a cornerstone in preparing our youth for success. As we look ahead, we aim to continue this legacy by ensuring that the next 60 years, and beyond, are just as promising for our students.

We envision a world where all young people have the skillset and mindset to build thriving communities. Your support is crucial to making this vision a reality, to helping provide students with the skills, knowledge, and mentorship they need to thrive in the ever-changing world. Together, we can set our students up to stay out of the cycle of poverty. The Next 60 Starts Here.

Calling All JA Alumni!

We’re collecting stories from JA alumni to showcase the impact of Junior Achievement. How did your JA experience prepare you for the world of business and leadership? What valuable lessons did you learn? What successes have you achieved? Your story, no matter how big or small, is a testament to the enduring legacy of JA.

Share your JA story with us, and let’s commemorate 60 years of excellence together. Your insights, triumphs, and the path you’ve paved since your JA days are an invaluable resource for today’s youth. Together, we can inspire the next generation.

This was a much-needed unit that arrived at the PERFECT time! It’s great that financial literacy is in the new math curriculum but we lack resources to teach it properly to the students. Who better to teach the kids than JA, the experts! I’d love to have you come visit my classroom next year!
