Junior Achievement of Washington

Volunteer-delivered, K-12 programs foster work readiness, entrepreneurship & financial literacy skills. JA's experiential learning inspires kids to dream big and reach their potential.

Junior Achievement of Washington provides hands-on, age appropriate educational economic programming to students in grades K - 12. JA programs are taught by a volunteer by the local business community and are provided at no cost to the schools. JA's programs are designed to help provide critical economic education at every grade level and work in a sequential nature to help ensure comprehension and competency

JA World provides BizTown for our Elementary capstone program and Finance Park for the middle grades capstone program. High school students also participate in Finance Park for a "Budget Challenge", a one-day event.
