Junior Achievement of Western Pennsylvania (JA)
Junior Achievement is a youth development organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in our global economy. JA's vision is to empower young people to own their economic success.
Programs and Services
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. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities. Junior Achievement's unique delivery system provides the training, materials, and support necessary to bolster the chances for student success. The impact is measurable, too. Students who participate in Junior Achievement programs demonstrate a significant understanding of economics and business concepts.
