Junior Achievement Big Bend

The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship supports the Junior Achievement (JA) commitment to developing future entrepreneurs. Junior Achievement (JA) is the world’s oldest and largest organization giving students K- 12th grades the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. JA’s mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.

Junior Achievement Big Bend provides volunteers, materials, scheduling and training, at no cost to the schools. JA programs are delivered by corporate and community volunteers who provide relevant, hands-on experiences. Junior Achievement reaches more than 4 million students across the United States each year. Locally, Junior Achievement Big Bend has reached over 18,000 students in the Leon County area.
