Junior Achievement of Southeastern Michigan is dedicated to kindergarten-12th grade programs that 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.
46,000 young people at nearly 200 schools and organizations benefit from Junior Achievement of Southeastern Michigan programs each year, with help from more than 2,500 dedicated volunteers.
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 County.
