Junior Achievement of Eastern Iowa
Children may only make up 24% of our population but they are 100% of our future!
Junior Achievement’s purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.
At Junior Achievement, we give young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices.
Our corporate and community volunteers deliver relevant, hands-on learning experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship.
JA programs empower students to make a connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world-enhancing the relevance of their classroom learning and increasing their understanding of the value of staying in school.
