Junior Achievement – Rocky Mountain

November 23, 2022

We are proud to support Junior Achievement – Rocky Mountain in JA’s efforts to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Junior Achievement focuses on three main areas: entrepreneurship, work readiness, and financial literacy. Our team members are regular volunteers at JA events in Colorado classrooms – teaching more than 113 hours of financial literacy curriculum in 2019. The traditional JA model allows for community volunteers, like our team members, to visit the same classroom for 5 visits to provide interactive lessons on a particular topic.
