Junior Achievement of New York offers in-school, after-school, and summer programs for students in grades K—12. Each year, with the help of volunteers, thousands of students across New York City and Long Island learn hands-on what they need to achieve success.
By inviting a JA New York volunteer into your classroom or school, you can give your students something truly unique - the chance to see first-hand how the lessons you're teaching them today can set them on the path to success in the future. Junior Achievement of New York volunteers teach lessons that reinforce the social studies, economics, and mathematics concepts you're already teaching, while bringing in examples from their own life experience.
JA New York's K—12 programs inspire young people to be successful by providing them with the tools, strategies, and motivation to thrive in school, in the workplace, and in life. The JA New York curriculum correlates with and enhances New York State and City social studies standards and teaches students about business, economics, life skills, and communication.
JA's unique approach integrates program materials, training, and support.
