Junior Achievement (JA) programs provide a modular learning experience that teaches students about the mindset and the skills needed for success by aspiring entrepreneurs and innovators who add value to any organization.
JA pairs teachers with volunteer presenters to deliver the program in either in-person, virtual, or blended formats, and/or will provide training for teachers to deliver these programs themselves as well. Provision of a volunteer to teach each class is provided free of charge. Call or Email Junior Achievement of Hawaii for more information or to schedule a volunteer to teach the program below.
JA Our Region introduces students to entrepreneurship and upper elementary grade social studies learning objectives, including regions, resources, supply chains, and problem solving. The learning experience provides students with a practical approach to starting a business while preparing them to be entrepreneurial in their thinking to meet the requirements of a demanding and ever-changing workforce.
