More than 40,000 young people benefit from Junior Achievement of Southeastern Michigan programs each year with help from 1,800 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 kindergarten through twelfth grade. Junior Achievement serves ten counties in Southeastern Michigan including Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, Livingston, Monroe, St. Clair, Shiawassee, Lapeer and Genesee.
