It all begins in the classroom.
Junior Achievement has been promoting business education since 1919, first through an after-school secondary program, and later through in-school partnerships with educators. Today, through partnerships with school districts, our programs have expanded to blend JA's experiential learning with traditional education to bring relevance, authenticity and application into everyday learning.
Junior Achievement of Central Texas offers programs that help students in grades K-12 discover and apply entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy concepts and skills. Our programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace.
JA's unique approach allows volunteers from the Central Texas community to deliver our curriculum while sharing their experiences with students. Embodying the heart of JA, our classroom volunteers transform the key concepts of our lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world.
