To empower young people to own their economic success and succeed in a global economy.
To be the essential partner in relationships between the educators, business leaders and community partners of Central Virginia for the benefit of all our youth.
To bring role models from our business community into the classroom to deliver educational programs about free enterprise, economics, and personal finance, enhanced by their own real world experiences.
We do this by developing…
- the desire in young people to stay in school and appreciate lifelong learning
- positive attitudes toward work and contributing to a diverse society
- business/education partnerships that create a bridge between the classroom and the workplace
We accomplish this through…
- sequential and integrated K – 12 programs
- volunteer role models of diverse backgrounds, supporting all classroom programs
- experienced-based learning
Programs span grades K – 12, with age-appropriate curricula designed to teach elementary students about their roles as individuals, workers, and consumers and to prepare middle grade and high school students for key economic and workforce issues they will face. In addition to bringing the free enterprise system to life in the classroom, Junior Achievement of Central Virginia’s programs teach youngsters the importance of staying in school. We also offer programs for young people who may have difficulty graduating from high school.
