Junior Achievement of Idaho is an organization that teaches the difference between “Wants” and “Needs.” Yet to those not familiar with us, it may seem like we are a want in a world of need. The truth is we are filling a critical need…building the future. There are many important and worthwhile organizations responding to the challenges of today, but we are focused on trying to solve the problems of tomorrow. At JA of Idaho, we give young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. Our corporate and community volunteers deliver relevant, hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. JA programs empower students to make a connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world – enhancing the relevance of their classroom learning and increasing their understanding of the value of their education.
