Empowering Young People to Own Their Economic Success.

“My experiences with Junior Achievement have been very wonderful and educational. I have learned numerous things to do and not to do. With your help, I can get a job. Without your help, I don’t know what I would have done.” – Latoya, High School

Empowering Success A Message From Our Chairman and President Through our research, we identified existing programs with the highest potential to engage students during their middle-school years and during key transition in their education, and grouped these programs under the JA Graduation Pathways strategy. This grouping allows us to strengthen the link between our programs and have a deeper impact on students at a time when the choices they make can drastically impact their future. Keith Burns Managing Partner Ernst & Young LLP

Tim Greinert President Junior Achievement of Wisconsin

Chairman of the Board Junior Achievement of Wisconsin

Dear Friends and Supporters: In today’s economy, many local business leaders are left to wonder whether the skills of our future workforce will align with the changing needs of their business. Our young people will need stronger financial and work-readiness skills to meet the needs of employers and ensure their personal economic success. Junior Achievement’s hands-on learning programs simulate real-world experiences and promote career discovery. We equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage their finances, pursue meaningful careers and positively contribute to our communities.

Over the coming year, we will look to expand our newly launched JA BizTown® and JA Finance Park® programs. Additionally, we will deepen our work in the area of career readiness, leveraging thousands of JA community volunteers to more strongly connect middle and high school students to careers and companies that are eager to engage with their future workforce. Junior Achievement is also committed to expanding the utilization of technology and blended learning strategies to enhance student learning and expand opportunities for students to engage with JA lessons during non-school hours. As Junior Achievement continues to drive positive, transformative change for our young people, we acknowledge the exceptional support of our community partners. Junior Achievement is fortunate to have a strong network of dedicated educators, community volunteers and supporters who believe in the boundless potential of our young people. With your continued guidance and passion, we will ensure that our students are prepared for success in the 21st century economy.

Statement of Operations Junior Achievement programs teach young people work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy. Working within these same principles, JA maintains fiscal responsibility in all that we do. As we uphold the integrity of our organization in this way, we model this behavior for our young people and honor the expectations of our donors.

To ensure we remain on target, we compare program implementation and outcomes against our financial bottom line on an annual basis. The Revenue Chart shows the means through which our organizational revenue is obtained. Most of our revenue is from the private sector; through corporations, individuals and foundations. The Expenses Chart illustrates that for every dollar raised, more than 87 cents is allocated to JA programming and the students we serve. (According to the National Charities Information Bureau, JA exceeds their philanthropy minimum guideline by 27%.) We remain committed to diligently managing our resources and to our philanthropic community in fulfilling each donor’s intent.

INSPIRATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS We are grateful for the continued support of Kohl’s Department Stores for renewing their partnership with Junior Achievement of Wisconsin with a donation of $1.5 million over three years. The funding will allow JA to increase the use of technology in JA BizTown® and JA Finance Park®. The donation comes from Kohl’s philanthropic program, Kohl’s Cares®.

New Partners: This spring, JA BizTown® welcomed two new shop sponsors, Culver’s and Chase Bank to the “real” city. The addition of Carroll University and Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC) as shop sponsors to JA Finance Park® gives students a new look at educational opportunities awaiting them.

Future titans of industry squared off at the 2013 JA Wisconsin Business Challenge hosted by ACUITY in Sheboygan. Utilizing JA Titan®, this global business online competition teaches practical economic lessons in real-time. Harrison Widdes, Zachary Daniel and Anna Kurzynski (pictured left to right) of Rice Lake High School, earned post-secondary scholarships for placing first among 42 teams statewide.

A true Junior Achievement success story: In May 2013, JA Alum and Harvard Business School graduate, William Hsu, delivered the keynote address at Northcentral District’s Champions of Business Awards Dinner. Hsu credits much of his success to Junior Achievement. “While my parents taught me to work hard, JA taught me to be confident in myself and my abilities,” says Hsu. Hsu serves as Vice President & Group President of Hsu Ginseng Enterprises, Inc., a business started by his father.


“Junior Achievement was a great opportunity for learning about jobs. I now have the confidence and the knowledge to have a great interview, and get the job I desire.” – Jamie, High School Student

Tim Greinert, President of JA of Wisconsin, displays a plaque commemorating May 17, 2013 as “JA Day” in Milwaukee, as proclaimed by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. “JA Day” creates opportunities for area businesses and volunteers to teach students about the importance of entrepreneurship, business concepts and financial literacy. On May 17th, 200 volunteers and 3,000 students from 8 different Milwaukee Public Schools participated in the “JA Day” program.

Road America Challenge. Thirty-four corporate teams from the Sheboygan area competed in three team-building challenges at the JA Corporate Challenge at Road America. Participants experienced how lacking financial literacy is like driving blind in the Blind-Folded Golf Cart Challenge. Entrepreneurs kept their eye on the ball with the Smooth Slalom, and everyone got a taste of global competition in the Go-Kart Races.

Young person recognizes value of volunteering: Griffin Monfils, a Shawano High School JA participant, received the Youth Volunteer Award from the Shawano Area Community Foundation, in part for the many hours spent volunteering for JA. Monfils remembers the learning and fun he had participating in JA as an elementary student and wanted to share that experience with current students.

“I will try to raise my grades from now to the end of senior year and college to get an amazing job,” said one 7th grade student from Merrill Middle School in Oshkosh after experiencing JA Finance Park®. The Oshkosh Area School District is excited to implement JA Finance Park® as a required class for all seventh grade students in the 2014/15 school year. Oshkosh joins eight other Milwaukee area school districts in making a level-wide commitment to Finance Park®.

“The best thing about Junior Achievement is ... EVERYTHING! I learned so much about resources. My mom didn’t even know some of it!” – Beth, Elementary School Student


Junior Achievement elementary school programs help students learn the basic concepts of business and economics and how education is relevant to the work-place. The program themes teach students that people assume roles as individuals, consumers and workers that extend from the self and family to the world around them. Activities are age appropriate, colorful and fun. Programs prepare students for secondary school and lifelong learning.

Birkholz, a 7th grade social studies teacher at DeLong Middle School in Eau Claire took a unique approach with her classrooms by teaching JA It’s My Business!® with a twist. Students split into teams and prepared a presentation show-casing their strongest business plan and proposal for a “Teen Center”. Groups then presented the information to a panel of business volunteers who provided feedback and selected the best idea.


Junior Achievement middle school programs help students recognize education as a key to success. Programs stress the importance of education and staying in school, while introducing students to more in-depth economic concepts and the world of work. In alignment with Common Core standards, these programs supplement standard social studies curricula and develop communication skills that are essential to the working world.

FOR CORY MARQUARDT, ONE SIMPLE CLASS SWITCH “LITERALLY CHANGED MY LIFE.” As a sophomore at D.C. Everest High School in Schofield, Cory made a big choice — dropping engineering and enrolling in a class called Entrepreneurship. In Entrepreneurship he participated in the JA Company Program®, an experience that proved to be “the best decision I made in high school.” “I was elected president and had an experience of a lifetime,” says Cory. The JA Company Program challenged Cory, requiring him to make business decisions in a

variety of scenarios…including terminating employees. After his experience in the JA Company Program®, Cory landed his first job as a teller at a local credit union. Next, he participated in the JA Business Challenge and was a student speaker at the Executive Business Challenge, both held in Wausau. As a senior he served as an advisor and received three more job offers from financial institutions. “Junior Achievement played a huge role in the creation of my network,” Cory says. “JA introduced me to area business leaders and job opportunities.” Cory is now active as a JA volunteer, teaching JA Our Region™ to fourth graders. Like many volunteers, he wants to give back and “show my appreciation and how thankful I was to have Junior Achievement in my life.” Cory will be a freshman at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa this fall. He is grateful for the Junior Achievement scholarship helping finance his education.
