Junior Achievement
Junior Achievement of Georgia’s vision is that students of JA will be prepared leaders, effectively competing in the global economy, and ultimately driving the economic success of Georgia.  Using business or community volunteers, JA brings award-winning economic programs to K-12 students in classroom, after school, and corporate settings.  JA programs teach children about today’s economy, develop character skills, and reinforce the value of staying in school.  JA volunteers, whether hosting students for a JA Job Shadow one-day event or teaching in the classroom for 5-8 visits, are trained and equipped with all of the JA program materials. Volunteers are encouraged to interweave their business experiences into the lessons, which help the students connect theory to reality.  Founded locally in 1943, JA of Georgia currently has offices in Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Dalton, Gainesville and Savannah.  For more information, please contact the Junior Achievement office at 404-257-1932 x203.
