Junior Achievement – Rocky Mountain

Now celebrating its 100th anniversary, Junior Achievement (JA) is the world’s largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. JA programs are delivered by corporate and community volunteers, and provide relevant, hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy, career readiness, and entrepreneurship. There is no cost for schools to implement JA programming.  JA-Rocky Mountain serves 118,000 students annually in Denver Metro, northern Colorado, mountain communities, and Wyoming.
