Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship, and Workforce Readiness

Junior Achievement of Southwest Virginia, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower young people to own their economic success. The national organization reaches millions of students worldwide, and here in Southwest Virginia we've served over 512,000 students in our 60 year history. We're excited to celebrate our Diamond Anniversary with you and look forward to growing that number!

Simply put our organization promotes financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship to students in our region. Your donations help students who have the capacity to make a difference as our future business leaders right here in the place we call home. We rely solely on local funding to make it happen - we don't charge membership fees, the education is free to students, and we're not funded by the United Way.

Our 400 volunteers from the local business community go into kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms to help students better understand how business works. Our volunteers not only present JA materials and lessons that are fun and informative for the students, but they also serve as role models, sharing their own business experience to help students better understand the relationship between what they learn in school and their success in later life.
