Junior Achievement North prepares young people with the skillset and mindset to build thriving communities. Our programming is critical in addressing the skills, wealth, and opportunity gaps our community is facing. We bring learning to life through dynamic programming and help students make connections between the classroom and the real world. Tomorrow’s leaders need our support today and JA North provides foundational tools and skills that will set students up for success.  

Pathways to Boundless Opportunity

  • Financial Literacy
    Teaching personal finance is often overlooked in traditional educational systems. Young people need to learn these skills to be successful.
  • Career Readiness
    Addressing the skills gap is critical as many graduating students lack basic skills like communication, problem-solving and critical thinking.
  • Entrepreneurship
    Inspiring our kids to dream big and reach their potential does not happen by chance. Tomorrow's visionaries will fuel the economy and lead our communities.
