We believe that prioritizing programming in rural communities will develop future leaders who are equipped to build vibrant local communities.
During the 2021-22 school year, 4,098 students from the Owatonna area were thriving with our impactful programming that taught them financial stability, connected them to real life skills and careers, ignited their interest in youth entrepreneurship and cultivated them to become engaged community leaders. We are focused on building diverse partnerships to meet the needs of our students. Last school year, we engaged with 14 schools and nearly 100 volunteers to provide K-12 experiential learning opportunities.
Funding for Junior Achievement North – Owatonna area comes from corporate partners, grants, individual gifts, and fundraising. We host a variety of engaging events to support programming in our area. Engage in our mission and support us in a fun way!
We are committed to expanding access to opportunities for our students across the communities of Owatonna, Waseca, Medford, NRHEG (New Richland, Ellendale, Heartland, Ellendale, and Geneva).
