Junior Achievement of Georgia, Inc.

Junior Achievement is the only organization focused on economic, education and workforce development. We believe that inspiring and preparing Georgia's young people to succeed in a global economy will result in a skilled workforce that will allow Georgia's business community to flourish and grow. We strive to impact tomorrow’s business and community leaders by bridging the gap between the business and education communities, encouraging Georgia's youth to set long term career goals and showing them the value of education. Our turn-key curriculum aligns to the Georgia Performance Standards, enhancing what students are learning in the classroom with real world examples and hands-on application of knowledge.

Junior Achievement of Georgia partners with corporations, organizations, schools and individuals concerned about the success of our students and our state. Our volunteer-led programs teach K-12 students about business and entrepreneurship, personal financial literacy, and workforce readiness. Volunteers share their personal and business experience to bring JA curriculum to life, helping students understand the real-world application of what they are learning in school. This added relevancy inspires and prepares young people to succeed in a global economy.

Junior Achievement has been inspiring and preparing Georgia's young people to succeed in a global economy since 1943. JA of Georgia is headquartered in Atlanta and has offices in Augusta (CSRA District), Columbus (West Central District), Dalton (Northwest Georgia District), Gainesville (Northeast Georgia District), and Savannah (Southeast Georgia District). During the 2010/2011 school year JA of Georgia impacted over 145,000 students statewide.
