Volunteer & Teacher Testimonials

  • I would certainly recommend the JA Finance Park to other schools both from the student perspective and the educator perspective. For the students, it's a fun and active way of applying the concepts they learned in class. For the educators, it's a great way of seeing what the students may not have understood fully in the application process.

  • The staff at Junior Achievement is the best at it. They might as well run a major corporation because of the level of precision, the level of practicality in marketing and communication, and understanding the needs of the students they serve... they're the best!

    Mr. Darrell Brown - Volunteer

  • When I bring a JA volunteer in, someone from business and industry, they're able to give the kids a different perspective. I believe the JA program brings a lot of reality for my students.
