JA Day

For more than 60 years, Junior Achievement of the Heartland has been empowering young people to own their economic success.  From Fort Madison, Iowa to Galena, Illinois and everywhere in-between, JA has been there to teach students how to successfully apply for a job, manage their money, or start and grow a business.

We are changing I can't into I can! See how.

In 1956, we began as a small operation, providing only the JA Evening Company program to small groups of high school students.  Today, we serve more than 57,000 students in grades kindergarten through high school.  Our successful journey is only possible because of the thousands of individuals committed to delivering JA in the communities we serve.

We invite you to join us Thursday, April 5 to celebrate you and JA's mission in our communities!
