Challenge

Our beneficiaries are students in New Hampshire who are in need of Junior Achievement program to better prepare them for the workforce. Through financial literacy education, Junior Achievement programs blaze positive pathways for students that inspire career exploration and teach skills necessary to economic self-sufficiency.

Solution

The mission of Junior Achievement (JA) is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Using hands-on experiences, JA helps to prepare young people for the real world by teaching skills in financial literacy, workforce readiness and entrepreneurship. Junior Achievement trains community volunteers to deliver curricula, and to incorporate the sharing of personal and professional experiences with students. The hallmark of Junior Achievement efforts, these mentors inspire students by transforming the JA lessons into relevant messages that connect what is learned in the classroom to real-world situations.
Junior Achievement of Northern New England seeks to gain donor commitments, and community awareness of the importance of empowering New Hampshire students to own their economic success. Through financial literacy education, JA programs blaze positive pathways that foster hope for young people who deal with adverse life factors that may compromise their future success. JA programs are taught by dedicated volunteers who add a layer of positive reinforcement to the classroom presentation.

Long-Term Impact

It's been proven that students who receive Junior Achievement (JA) six times during their school career are 90% more likely to graduate from high school. The long-term goal of our project will be for youth to develop attitudes aligned with high school graduation and 21st century skills that prepare them for success. Through the efforts to continuously impact students, our project would provide much-needed financial literacy education to students in New Hampshire.
