Junior Achievement is the world's largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs. They use a unique approach that allows volunteers from the community to deliver their curriculum while sharing experiences with students.
The programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.
Blue Cross has a long history of supporting Junior Achievement. The company values the positive impact the JA instructors and lessons have on children in our service area.
