Celebrating JA Alumni Month

Junior Achievement students do amazing things and from what we hear, they continue to do so as adults.

Junior Achievement (JA) of San Diego County is celebrating January as JA Alumni Month. The initiative is an effort to reconnect with millions of people who participated in Junior Achievement programs while in grades K -12 since the organization's founding in 1919. Today’s young people now more than ever need the wisdom, passion and leadership JA Alumni can bring inside the classroom.

Since 1950, Junior Achievement of San Diego County has provided life-changing programs to more than 865,000 youth—in the classroom and after school—to foster an understanding of how the “real world” works. To ensure youth are prepared for their future, JA teaches them how to get a job, start a business and how to manage money.

JA alumni represent a qualified volunteer force that already believe in JA’s mission of inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy. They have seen firsthand how our life-changing programs empower students to make the connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world. Did JA make a difference in your life? Is there a story you want to share about how a JA mentor positively influence your life or career?

Ninety-two percent of your fellow JA alumni say it was one of their most important and valuable educational experiences.

Are you JA? Tell your story to inspire and educate the next generation of San Diego leaders. Please reconnect with JA by calling our office at (619) 682-5155 or email,
