Junior Achievement is the world’s largest and fastest-growing non-profit economic education organization. Our programs are taught by classroom volunteers from the business community in your area across America and in over 119 countries worldwide.
Junior Achievement of Southwestern Indiana began in 1964. Since that time the program has grown to serve over 22,000 students in its 13 county service area; which includes Southwestern Indiana and Southeastern Illinois. Junior Achievement is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization. This year more than 500 business professionals, parents, retirees, and college students from this community will enter our schools to teach Junior Achievement programs. These volunteers use their personal experiences to make the Junior Achievement curricula practical and realistic. Providing children with positive adult role models, who illustrate ways to build self-confidence, develop skills, and find avenues of success in our free enterprise system, is a hallmark of Junior Achievement.
