As a result of Junior Achievement USA's partnership with the Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency prevention, these three after-school programs have been developed for elementary, middle grades, and high school students.
JA More than Money
JA More than Money teaches students about earning, spending, sharing, and saving money. It also identifies businesses that students can start or jobs they can perform to earn money. Students play a game to learn money-management skills and to better understand the role and importance of money in their lives.
JA It's My Business!
JA It's My Business! encourages students to use critical thinking to learn entrepreneurial skills. Those skills include knowing customers' wants and needs, launching effective marketing, and creating detailed business plans. By examining the characteristics of successful entrepreneurs, students learn that a belief in one's self can make positive things happen in life.
