Rising Achievers

Rising Achievers belong to the generation of CHOICE, where there was a JA program to suit everybody. You participated in JA when our program offerings and opportunities for students expanded rapidly. We went from being an organization known for after-school business and entrepreneurship experiences to a deliverer of in-school and workplace-based programming focused on financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness – the three pillars of financial stability.
