Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Junior Achievement recognizes the importance of honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his legacy of service.  Of all Dr. King’s lasting legacies, one of the most powerful was his belief in strengthening communities and empowering individuals. This belief propelled Dr. King to accomplish a great many things for this country that have inspired generations of Americans.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday provides the opportunity to come together with friends and neighbors to address some of American’s most pressing issues.

One such issue is a lack of financial literacy. The importance of learning the basic concepts of money management, from a young age, cannot be understated, yet many feel inadequate to take the job upon themselves.

We invite you to join Junior Achievement on this historical day to prepare and inspire San Diego's young adults for future financial success. 

Now more than ever, teens need your knowledge and skills to help them succeed beyond teh classroom.  You can make a big difference in the life of a young person. For more information, on how to become a JA Volunteer visit:
