Through the delivery of JA programs, we are helping youth stay in school, be prepared for the changing workforce, open their own business, create jobs, and be financially knowledgeableJA programs are focused on three pillars, which help the ongoing success of students:

  • Financial Literacy
    JA empowers students to make smart, lifelong financial choices. Through our financial literacy programs, students learn how to create and manage wealth. They develop skills in areas such as budgeting, investing and creating financial plans.
