Are you a JA Alum?

Unemployment among 15 to 24-year-olds is twice the national average. Among young people with just a high school diploma, the jobless rate is nearly 30 percent. 

 It's an unmitigated disaster for our economy because without jobs and earnings, 1 million unemployed young Americans cannot participate in the economic recovery.

Right now, nothing is more important than teaching the next generation how to be ready for the global economy. Today’s kids desperately need the same life-changing JA training that you received as a youth. 

For the past 95 years, Junior Achievement has been working through our schools teaching kids how to get a job, start a business and how money works.

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

If you are a JA alum, we want to hear from you. We want to hear and use your story to inspire and educate the next generation.

To tell your story, please contact Kristi Zimsky, PR Manager at or call our office at (619) 682-5155.
