Junior Achievement

Description

Junior Achievement of Eastern Iowa is dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to own their economic success. JA helps young people achieve their goals by immersing them in real life learning opportunities where they can take risks, manage the results, and learn from the outcomes. By teaching students about career readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy earlier in life, a generation is empowered to transform “I can’t” into “I CAN.” Throughout the school year, JA programs are scheduled with educators to complement classroom efforts in meeting Iowa Core Standards. JAEI serves 47,665 students in 207 schools throughout 17 counties.
