Junior Achievement of Western PA, Northwest Region

Goal: $3,000.00

Specific Need

JA of Western Pennsylvania's volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster workforce development, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students in our community to dream big and reach their potential.

JA helps students realize that the education they are getting today will help them to have a bright future tomorrow. JA's unique, volunteer delivered programs, show them all of the possibilities that lay before them. They realize they can choose different paths; College? A specific trade? Start their own business?

  • 20% of U.S. students will not complete high school on time and earn a diploma.
