About Junior Achievement
Junior Achievement relies on the success of business professionals to inspire and prepare students embrace free enterprise and succeed in a global economy. Junior Achievement's K-12 business and economic curriculum comes to life when volunteers from the business community lead students through the innovative, hands-on lesson plans. Volunteers act as invaluable role models for students and provide relevance to what students learn; showing students the link between education and future opportunity. During the 2007-08 school year, Junior Achievement's proven programs will reach 87,000 young people in 525 schools in Denver and Northern Colorado, and will be taught by 3,000 volunteers. Share your success and inspire kids to reach their full potential. For more information, visit www.jacolorado.org or call (303) 534-JAJA.
