How Junior Achievement Leveraged IT to Serve More Students
Junior Achievement of Arizona equips future generations with the skills and knowledge to be successful and pursue their dreams through critical financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship skills that will prepare them to succeed in work and in life. They offer STEM programs, mentorships, classes, and more to serve our students, their families, and their future employers.
