Junior Achievement of South Texas

Junior Achievement of South Texas is dedicated to educating students about work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on volunteer led programs.

JA programs have proven to be successful at raising students’ educational and career aspirations and teaching students to create opportunities to achieve their goals. The curriculum aligns with Texas education standards, provides a positive business role model, and forms an effective bridge between business and education. By pairing community volunteers with professional educators JA will bring economic education programming to students throughout South Texas.
