Junior Achievement of Rochester, NY Area Inc.



It is imperative that we, as a community, offer opportunities for our children to learn the correlation between education, careers, and economic self-sufficiency.

Since 1968, Junior Achievement of Rochester, NY Area Inc. has helped local students learn about real life, real business and the real rewards of education. JA of Rochester, NY Area Inc. currently serves a 9 county area.

JA's programs are predesigned, classroom or after-school based K-12 curriculums and are delivered by community volunteers to local students (our future employees) in 5 to 8 visits per program. Elementary students learn the basic concepts of business and economy. Middle grade students connect "learning with earning" through practical problem-solving activities and high school students are provided programs designed to help them be prepared for college and the world of work.

The goal of the volunteer dimension of Junior Achievement's programs has remained constant since our inception. That is to bring economic and business theory to life through the simplest of human interactions-sharing.

To do so we need your help. Our ability to reach more children is to a large part, predicted on our ability to secure more volunteers to go into the classroom and deliver JA programs.

Join the hundreds of local communities members who assist Junior Achievement of Rochester, NY Area, Inc. help our children. Our classroom volunteers not only serve as excellent role models for students, they also provide the energy and personal observations and experiences that make learning fun!

Mission: Junior Achievement Mission Statement: To ensure that every child has a fundamental understanding of the free enterprise system, business and economics in order to improve the quality of their lives.
