Partner With Junior Achievement

Volunteer presenting to students
Your company can make a difference in the lives of youth in Kansas City. Junior Achievement equips employees from local organizations with the resources they need to deliver crucial programs to students in the classroom or at the JA Youth Learning Lab. JA volunteers work with programs which are developed with a focus on several different critically needed areas; STEM, Leadership Skills, Uplifting At-Risk Communities, Work Readiness and Soft Skills, Business Ethics, College Readiness, Career and Technical Education (CTE), Industry Focus (Manufacturing/Health), and Financial Literacy.

JA mentors inspire and prepare young people to succeed in the global economy. By partnering with JA, you will empower young people to own their economic success.

JA role-models develop leaders with the critical skills and the character necessary to succeed in 21st century workplaces.

JA volunteers are empowered with quality, skills-based volunteering experiences in the community, using proven programs that change young peoples' lives.
