Teach with Junior Achievement
Junior Achievement has been promoting business education in Africa for over 30 years, first through our school-based program, and in partnerships with educators. The cumulative impact on students is currently nearly 2 million, and it’s growing.
Students who participate in Junior Achievement programs demonstrate a significant understanding of economics and business concepts, particularly those who participate in programs that focus on entrepreneurship.
Why Junior Achievement in the Classroom?
Junior Achievement’s unique delivery system provides the training, materials, and support necessary to bolster the chances for student success. At your invitation, we help arrange for business people and local community leaders to visit your classroom a few times or throughout the semester. They volunteer to share their workforce experience with your students, all while teaching sound economic principles and reinforcing your class curricula.
Our programs are meant to supplement the curriculum that students are already learning within the class. We offer a diverse and hands-on programming that keeps students engaged while still educating about entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness.
Our programs are flexible in their delivery methods. Depending on which program you choose for your class, you can have multiple visits or one-day events that can run throughout the school year.
