Junior Achievement is here to support students, parents and teachers during this period of uncertainty. Learning can continue and JA is providing access to learning experiences that students can do on their own, with a parent or other caring adult, or with teachers via a digital/virtual environment. Resources are organized by school level and can be used whether or not you’ve engaged in a JA program in the past. We will be continuing to add to the content in the coming days so check back often.
Tomorrows are More Important Than Ever.
Today is uncertain. Tomorrow represents hopes and dreams.
In a world that is rapidly changing, Junior Achievement remains committed to students, educators and you, our volunteer. JA programs rely on volunteers from our community to interact with and impact students’ lives. This year, we have created opportunities for virtual engagement of volunteers and developed digital options for learning.
There are two different ways students can still receive JA programs this fall.
- JA volunteers lead JA programming as a virtual volunteer “visiting the classroom” via collaboration software such as Zoom.
- Educator distributes materials to students and actively supports JA volunteer during program sessions.
- Additional resources such as online videos and fillable PDF files are available to supplement lessons.
- Classroom educators lead JA programs in the classroom or via a remote learning platform such as Zoom.
- To supplement educator-led content, JA volunteers are needed to help record short videos that highlight JA program session content or to serve as subject matter experts (e.g. volunteers who are passionate about budgeting may record videos to be used for a JA Personal Finance® program).

great news is that JA teaches students these same qualities through lessons focused on
financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship.
