Challenge

Our beneficiaries are students in New Hampshire who are in need of Junior Achievement program to better prepare them for the workforce. Through financial literacy education, Junior Achievement programs blaze positive pathways for students that inspire career exploration and teach skills necessary to economic self-sufficiency.

Solution

Using the JA delivery model, a trained business volunteer will be assigned to a classroom in New Hampshire to teach the students core lessons in financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship. These lessons, which help students to appreciate the importance of staying in school in order to earn a living once out of school, are not consistently being taught in our community. Junior Achievement helps to bridge this gap.

Long-Term Impact

It's been proven that students who receive Junior Achievement (JA) six times during their school career are 90% more likely to graduate from high school. The long-term goal of our project will be for youth to develop attitudes aligned with high school graduation and 21st century skills that prepare them for success. Through the efforts to continuously impact students, our project would provide much-needed financial literacy education to over 300 students in New Hampshire.
