As a community, we must fight "learning loss" during the extended school break caused by COVID-19. In addition to curriculum, we are committed to providing technical support to both educators and non-educators (parents, guardians, community volunteers, etc).

All Junior Achievement programming aligns with Common Core State Standards, National Standards for Financial Literacy, and 21st Century Skills.

Please view the below grade-specific virtual programs below and learn more by clicking the buttons to the left:

  • Grades 3-6th: JA More Than Money - recommended for parents

  • Grades 6-12th: JA Virtual Programs for Teacher Implementation - recommended for teachers

    Request a Presenter to Teach Curriculum

    A Junior Achievement Volunteer teaches students
    Junior Achievement lessons are delivered by volunteers from the community. These presenters are prepared by JA to facilitate engaging learning activities that focus on financial literacy, work and career readiness, and entrepreneurship. This results in an enriched learning experience that helps students make the connection between what they learn in school and the world outside the classroom.
