"We hear all the time that kids can't balance a checkbook but the JA programs help them not only do these kinds of things but they help them to see what it takes to run a business. What are the economics that are involved in that?  It helps them run their own lives better." - B'Port teacher

About Junior Achievement
8,000 + young people at nearly 50 schools and organizations benefit from Junior Achievement of Brazoria County programs each year, with help from more than 300 dedicated volunteers. JA programs change lives by giving young people the tools to thrive and teaching three crucial lessons: personal financial responsibility, workforce readiness and entrepreneurial thinking. JA empowers young people to own their economic success. This mission is accomplished through volunteers who take the time to teach JA, provide role model behavior and establish a mentoring relationship with students in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Junior Achievement of Brazoria County serves all school districts in the county as well as private schools, after school and in school groups and organizations.

Online Tool For Teens, Educators & Parents

JA, with the support of The Hartford, has launched  JA MyBiz Builder. It's a free online tool for teens, educators and parents.
With hands-on activities, this free tool allows teens to create and test a business plan.

Business leaders claim that the generation of students entering the workplace lacks many critical "soft" skills like problem solving and critical thinking, abilities that contribute to an individual's and an organization's success. Details here

It's a no brainer and our kids need your help. Junior Achievement is seeking volunteers to facilitate in-school programs focusing on financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and workforce readiness. Detailed lesson plans, program materials, and comprehensive training are provided to volunteers by JA. There are many opportunities at various grade levels and schools. Your commitment of four to six hours will make a positive impact on our local youth as they plan for their futures. To learn more, contact the JA office at 979.549.0800 or 979.549.0805. We're on a mission to inspire and prepare youth to be self-supporting adults, and would love for you to join us.   Most local employers support the JA programs and allow time to volunteer.
