Teachers Bring Success
Into the Classroom
Give Them The Power To Change The World
Junior Achievement (JA) brings business into the classroom. JA recruits and trains community volunteers to visit classrooms in south Texas and teach young people how the real world of business works.
JA volunteers use prepared and practical hands on activities to show students from kindergarten through twelfth grade how the business world operates and how it affects the students as family members, citizens and consumers.
JA volunteers will meet with your students in their regular classroom for 45 minutes a week for 5 to 8 weeks depending on the program.
Junior Achievement of South Texas offers over 20 experiential, hands on programs that help students, grades k-12, discover and apply entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy concepts and skills.
JA programs are correlated to the TEKS requirements providing an opportunity to reinforce what educators teach in the classroom. Download correlations here.
