Dear Junior Achievement Heroes: This school year we are celebrating an exciting milestone, Junior Achievement’s 25th year of inspiring and empowering students in the Greater Tri-Cities to believe in themselves, helping them make the connection between what they are learning in school and what they will need to succeed in work and in life. We want to sincerely thank YOU for all the support, time, and dedication you’ve given to improving the lives of local students. Embodying the heart of JA, our 350 classroom volunteers transform the key concepts of our lessons into a message that brings financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship skills to life. Last year alone, our outreach grew by 6% to reach 9,727 local students. Together, we’ve served more than 120,000 local students during the past 25 years, and in the next five years alone, we plan to serve an additional 60,000 students!

Beyond sheer program growth, feedback received from educator focus groups reinforces that JA programs are truly making a difference in the lives of Tri-Cities and Walla Walla youth. Educators confirm that by collaborating with dedicated business partners and committed volunteers, our comprehensive curriculum provides students with a blueprint for how they can be successful, helping them turn their dreams into reality. Since the early days, this area has been a platform for creativity, innovation, and a strong can-do spirit. JA programs provide the building blocks essential for today’s youth to become the next generation of innovators and leaders in our community. It is with this in mind that we are dedicated to inspiring entrepreneurial values in local young people throughout our region for the next 25 years and beyond. We are excited about our aggressive expansion plans and the impact on thousands of young lives. Our kids are counting on us. To help prepare them for future success, they need your guidance and wisdom. We invite you to contact us TODAY about becoming a JA classroom volunteer. You will be glad you did! Sincerely, Khris Judy Randolph Construction Services, Inc. Chair, JA Board of Directors

Welcome to JA BizTown. Imagine a city where young consumers have real jobs, where they rush to the bank to deposit their paychecks, sales clerks create merchandise displays, and reporters interview local business leaders to get the latest story. On April 10, 2012, seventy-seven confident and energized 5th graders from Walla Walla’s Berney Elementary School stepped off their school busses and into JA BizTown, prepared to run their own mini city. JA BizTown is part of JA World in Yakima, which opened in June of 2011. Prior to visiting JA BizTown, students engage in JA’s 19-lesson teacher-led curriculum that takes them through the study of business principles, career exploration, banking procedures, business decisions, and economic terms. With JA BizTown, students are prepared for the workplace and life. 3


Many influential business leaders and management gurus agree— the affinity that employees feel toward an employer has the power to create a competitive advantage that can be hard to imitate, and is inextricably linked to organizational performance. Sometimes intangible, its force is undeniable…

JA by the Numbers

What Our Volunteers are Saying

178,000 volunteers impacted 4 million students in the USA during 2011-2012, including 350 JA volunteers who inspired nearly 10,000 local students in Benton, Franklin, and Walla Walla counties.

“After teaching JA, I know how important it is for kids to learn these lessons early. Having the possibility to impact the students’ futures is a great feeling but, if more students and volunteers could take part in JA, I believe that our society as we know it could change.”

98% of teachers agreed that the program helped students prepare for the future. 94% of volunteers agreed that their communication and/or presentation skills improved. JA Area Offices reached students in 176,000 classrooms across the country, including 366 classrooms in the Greater Tri-Cities and Walla Walla region.

96% of volunteers agreed that their sense of involvement in the community increased. Adapted from 2011 Junior Achievement USA®, Volunteer Satisfaction Survey

…Indeed, companies that view their volunteer programs as strategic assets and incorporate service into their business planning may have a distinct advantage when it comes to engaging millennials and capturing their minds, hearts and spirits. A strategic employee volunteerism program can help satisfy energetic millennials’ desire for stimulating and diverse work assignments and leadership opportunities, respond to their desire to make a meaningful difference in society, and have a very beneficial impact on society. 2011 Executive Summary, Deloitte Volunteer IMPACT Survey
