WELCOME Dear Friends of Junior Achievement: We are pleased to share with you Junior Achievement USA’s 2020-2021 Annual Report. The past year was a challenging one for JA, as it was for most organizations in light of the global pandemic. Our main objective is to inspire and prepare young people for success. This was especially difficult at a time when many schools were struggling to deliver basic educational programming while balancing needs for health and public safety. For JA, this put us in a position of having to be more creative and innovative in order to get our learning experiences to students. While JA has been in the process of a digital transformation for a number of years, the pandemic forced us to accelerate that transition as we adopted a “digital first” approach. This meant quickly adapting existing content to online platforms, embracing virtual volunteering, trying unique educational experiences, and finding new ways to engage stakeholders by sharing our progress through stories, virtual presentations, and thought leadership. As a result, our pandemic response has been recognized with prestigious honors from Learn X Live!, The Brandon Hall Group, and the Communicator Awards. You will learn more about our “digital first” approach in this annual report, as well as our work in promoting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), success stories of our impact, and much more. Suffice it to say, we are very proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish during these challenging times, but none of it would be possible without the investment of time, talent, and resources of stakeholders like you. Thank you for your support of Junior Achievement. We appreciate everything you do to make a difference in the lives of the young people we serve. Sincerely,

Jack E. Kosakowski President & CEO Junior Achievement USA

James M. Carroll Chairman, Junior Achievement USA Senior Vice President, Global Government Relations Honeywell International

A BRIEF HISTORY Junior Achievement was founded in 1919 by Theodore Vail, president of American Telephone & Telegraph; Horace Moses, president of Strathmore Paper Co.; and Senator Murray Crane of Massachusetts. Its first program, JA Company Program®, was offered to high school students on an after-school basis. In 1975, the organization entered the classroom with the introduction of Project Business for the middle grades. Since then, Junior Achievement has expanded its activities and broadened its scope to include in-school and afterschool students.

THE ALLSTATE FOUNDATION According to a new study by Junior Achievement (JA) and The Allstate Foundation, nearly 1 in 3 U.S. teenagers aged 13-18 (31%) have experienced unhealthy financial warning signs in a romantic relationship. Both teen girls and boys reported being prevented from going to school or work or being told what they could or could not purchase by a partner. Well over half of teens (61%) trust their parents or guardians the most to teach them about healthy shared finances with a romantic partner or friend. However, a majority of teens (55%) have heard their parents argue about money within the last 30 days, and a third (33%) agree that their parents spend money on things they don't need instead of supporting the family. Despite this, a significant percentage of teens (30%) have spoken with their parents or guardians on how to share expenses with a friend or romantic partner. To help high school students recognize and avoid unhealthy financial relationships, Junior Achievement and The Allstate Foundation have partnered to redevelop JA Personal Finance 2.0, a financial literacy program for teens. The redevelopment includes new discussion topics and activities focused on aspects of both healthy and unhealthy financial relationships.


"Financial abuse is a form of domestic violence and one of the main reasons victims can't leave their abusive partners," said Francie Schnipke Richards, vice president of social responsibility at The Allstate Foundation, "We know that relationship violence can start at a young age, and the results from this study underscore the importance of teaching young people about healthy financial relationships early. We're proud to work with Junior Achievement USA to better equip young people with this education to help prevent violence before it starts." Junior Achievement USA is grateful for The Allstate Foundation’s dedication to the JA Personal Finance program and the redevelopment of its content to include a focus on healthy financial relationships for teens. These lessons will allow high school students to explore how their financial decisions can affect others and will provide guidance on healthy ways to manage shared financial decisions and conflict with a partner.



JANUS HENDERSON Junior Achievement USA and The Janus Henderson Foundation, the philanthropic giving arm of global asset manager Janus Henderson Investors partnered to bring the new JA Titan®, an online simulation that allows teens to start and run a virtual business, to JA classrooms all over the world. JA Titan is a simulation-based program in which high school students compete as business CEOs in the phone industry, experiencing firsthand how an organization evaluates alternatives, makes decisions, analyzes the outcomes of those decisions, and then strategizes next steps. With a focus on financial literacy and insights into the workforce, JA Titan brings business economics to life. As students work in teams, or independently, to make financial decisions about production, marketing, research and development (R&D), and corporate social responsibility (CSR), they begin to see how every choice made in an organization relates to its future success. Within the new JA Titan program, a variety of sessions are offered to meet the wide range of needs for students in grades 9–12 based on their previous knowledge and experience with business concepts. These include an introductory tutorial session, topical sessions for the major business departments within the JA Titan company, and deep dive sessions used outside of the simulation for hands-on practice with business concepts. Students implement what they have learned by competing in a challenging, fast paced, and exciting in-class competition for the title of JA Titan of Business.



CHICK-FIL-A Junior Achievement USA and Chick-fil-A, Inc. partnered to bring the new, redeveloped JA Be Entrepreneurial program to JA students throughout the United States. This reimagined program, which has been part of JA’s high school programming for nearly 20 years, challenges students to understand the concepts of innovation and entrepreneurship by introducing them to concepts such as creative problem solving, how to think like an entrepreneur, and innovating for the social good. Students use design thinking, a problem-solving approach, to create business ideas as they navigate the three program modules. This program aims to empower students to transform their ideas into concise, effective, and actionable one-page business plans. Thanks to Chick-fil-A’s support, all JA students who participate in JA Be Entrepreneurial have the opportunity to compete in a new national virtual competition, JA Social Innovation Challenge, which provides a platform for them to share their innovative ideas for improving their communities and to compete for national honors. The student teams with the top ideas are eligible to participate in an exclusive, virtual workshop experience in which Chick-fil-A innovation experts and entrepreneurs provide additional guidance and resources for transforming students’ ideas into reality. Chick-fil-A is also a national supporter of JA 3DE programming, an innovative high school model proven to increase student engagement and accelerate academic outcomes through learning that is more relevant and authentically connected to life beyond the classroom walls.

FULL CIRCLE THROUGH JA Evan - Student of JA of Lincoln Ah, elementary school! It’s supposed to be one of the best times in your life, and in all fairness, I had a pretty good experience: I was surrounded by kind teachers and I went to an awesome school but if I’m being truthful, my favorite part of the day was at 3:38, because I was moments away from running into the comfort of my mom’s arms, right outside the school door. We’d drive home, the place where I felt I could truly be myself. It wasn’t always easy for me. A lot of time as a young kid, I felt like an outsider. I was curious and wanted to talk about the world around me. I simply wanted to make friends with everyone I met. I had big ideas! Most days, it was no big deal, but some days, I felt really alone. Then, in the 5th grade, my perspective changed drastically after receiving a classroom visit from a Junior Achievement volunteer. That volunteer was different than anyone I’d met at school, and guess what? She was there to talk about all the stuff I found so interesting! Leadership! Marketing! Mock design! All the good stuff. It made me more curious than ever but rather than making me feel like my questions were weird, she answered them with a warm smile and made me feel included...like what I had to say mattered. “This is what it feels like to feel at home while at school,” I remember thinking. The gears were turning, I started thinking about some of my big ideas and imagining ways to bring them to life.


Fast forward to high school and the feeling of relief that first week of Lincoln High. I was finally in the right place and began to find “my people.” I also realized I was developing a true love for plant science and applied to the Ag Bio program at The Career Academy, a special offshoot of learning through Lincoln Public Schools that allows students to pursue their passions while gaining real world experience. I started spending half my days at Southeast Community College for Ag Bio classes, and the other half at LHS. I started to feel like I truly belonged, and like I was learning cool stuff I could share with others. I also remembered how my elementary school experience with Junior Achievement had made such an impact on my life. I started to wonder if I could do the same thing for students who felt the way I once did, only by sharing my love of plants and community! I decided to create Branching Outward, a project supported by a local nonprofit, Blixt Locally Grown. Our mission? To work alongside schools and communities to grow produce and possibilities! This spring I’ve been fortunate to work alongside the Community Learning Center at Lefler Middle School with an amazing group of students in their outdoor garden space. We spend half of the class learning about plant science, and the other half exploring our own humanity and the important role each student plays in our community simply by being themselves. Together we grow, just like the plants. The main goal of our time together is to help people who haven’t yet found their people, to find their people, which is exactly what Junior Achievement did for me in elementary school. By rewarding my curiosity, and helping me feel like my ideas were valid, JA helped me feel a new kind of belonging that stayed with me. I became more confident in my ideas and found friends who felt the same. Now I try to share that feeling of confidence and belonging with middle school learners at Lefler and beyond!




Gavin Williams - JA of North Central Ohio

My experience with JA has been nothing short of amazing. As a kid, I always dreamed of starting a business, and JA provided so many opportunities for me not only to succeed but to thrive in pursuit of that dream. When I started Finlit, I was touched by the immense support, guidance, and leadership provided under the JA organization. It’s not so often to meet a group of people, let alone an organization that is focused on helping others succeed. This level of compassion was vital to Finlit’s success. As a company, our goal was to teach financial literacy in a fun, interactive, and engaging way. Throughout the brainstorming process, we decided to develop a board game that teaches three core aspects of finance: budgeting, saving, and investing. While we knew this would be a great product, it was going to take a lot of work. Within three months, we managed to develop a board game, design all the components, as well as partner with a manufacturer overseas where the boards were printed and pressed on an assembly line. While this was in the works, our “prototype” consisted of hand-drawn boards and cards using construction paper. That means we had to hold up pieces of hand-drawn paper to convey our idea to professional investors, while other companies had their product in hand. In fact, we lost our first initial investment because the investors didn’t believe we’d have the finished product ready in time.


It was during this time in which Finlit was forced to consider pivoting to a different product in order to make the seasonal deadline. But we managed to push through. We had done a demo at the North Canton Middle School using our hand-drawn prototypes. Over forty students played “Budget or Bust” as part of a financial literacy class. The kids absolutely loved the game. During the demo, students were recognizing the importance of conscious financial decision-making and risk tolerance. After the demo, kids would come up to me and my team asking where to buy the game, and they begged the teacher to have us come again. This experience had a profound effect on our team, and we refused to pivot. We saw our impact first hand and we knew we could expand our footprint beyond North Canton. What I will never forget is that JA believed in us the entire time. Even on the brink of failure. With immense focus and hard work, we managed to develop the final product. Within the first two weeks of launching our ad campaign, we sold over 100 units through preorders alone, reached 50,000 people nationwide, and sold in 13 states. JA saw our success and pushed us even further, providing opportunities to participate in competitions and trade shows. Through JA, I had the opportunity to speak on WKYC twice, and the incredible privilege to speak to prominent individuals in the business world on CNBC. These moments were incredibly special, and it wouldn’t have been possible without JA’s support. Perhaps the greatest memory was the national JA competition. Since COVID guidelines were still in effect, the competition was held virtually. My mentors from the local JA branch in Ohio worked together to set up a space for my company to hold the presentation for the national competition. During the final day of the competition, the room was filled with my company’s family members, mentors, and teachers. Everyone who had watched us grow throughout the year was in that room. I’ll never forget when the winners were announced. I was in a separate room, a tiny office space. There is absolute silence as Jack Kosakowski announces the first place winners. “In first place we have… none other than… Finlit!”. The building erupted in cheering and shouting. I thanked everyone who had been with us throughout our journey. I thanked my mom, who raised me as a single mother in Akron, where we lived on foodstamps and welfare. After the speech, my team rushed in to give me a hug. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. As I write this, I still get emotional. My experience with JA has been nothing but life changing. After winning the competition I’ve been able to give back to aspiring young entrepreneurs. Just recently I had the privilege to speak to incoming CEO’s at Kent State University. Currently, Finlit is registered with the state of “Ohio as Finlit Enterprises LLC”, and we are continuing our mission to teach financial literacy across the nation. As an 18 year old, I have managed to achieve my dream and make an impact. I feel an immense level of fulfillment and support all thanks to my teachers and the JA organization. From a hand-drawn prototype to award winning-product, and an Akron kid with a dream to a CEO, what a testament to prove that humble beginnings can lead to magnificent journeys.




Nafeesah Williams

Nafeesah Williams is a Commercial Support Specialist with Bank of America in Fresno, California. She has been involved with Junior Achievement of Northern California for nearly eight years and in 2020 was recognized as their 2020 Volunteer of the Year. Nafeesah first became involved with JA as an employee volunteer at Bank of America when she was invited by a colleague to join their volunteer efforts at a local elementary school. “I was so terrified at first,” says Nafeesah. “But I’m so glad I did. Without seeing for myself, there’s just no way I would have known that in a single day I can impact the lives of 20 or more kids.” Nafeesah believes that Junior Achievement is making a significant impact on our youth, by helping them understand the basics of financial literacy at an early age. Through her volunteering experience, Nafeesah says that JA has an impact on students’ lives that you can see immediately. “There’s no greater feeling than seeing their smiling faces when you leave that classroom,” Nafeesah adds. Junior Achievement ensures that underserved communities are reached first and that kids who may not have a positive role model can experience them through JA’s programs. “It teaches them early on that they can accomplish anything that they put their minds to and that they work hard for,” concludes Nafeesah. “If you haven’t ever volunteered for JA, do it. You won’t regret it.”


DIGITAL FIRST For most of its history, Junior Achievement delivered its learning experiences in-person using a paper-based curriculum. This approach began to change in 2013 with the adoption of a blended-learning approach that used the best of in-classroom teaching with digital content delivery. As a result of this transformation, Junior Achievement incorporated design-thinking practices and a collaborative approach to innovation that proved invaluable in JA's response to the global pandemic. Soon after schools began to limit in-person learning in March of 2020 due to the first wave of COVID-19, Junior Achievement instituted a "Digital First" strategy. This meant JA accelerated several technology-based initiatives that were in the works, such as virtual volunteering and remote learning. In addition, JA prioritized numerous projects aimed at moving traditional paper-based programs to digital platforms. This, combined with R&D projects undertaken at the local level by JA offices across the country, resulted in a paradigm shift in JA's delivery of learning experiences. In 2021, Junior Achievement was recognized for its pandemic response. In August, JA, along with its learning technology partner CrossKnowledge, received two Bronze Awards for Excellence from the Brandon Hall Group for "Leading Under a Crisis" and "Best Use of Games or Simulations for Learning" – joining other organizations such as Amazon and General Motors in the category. Then in November, JA received a Diamond Award for “Best Pandemic Response” and Gold for “Best Learning Technology” from educational design leader LearnX. While in-person delivery of learning experiences will always be a priority for Junior Achievement, the changes necessitated by restrictions associated with the pandemic put JA in a position to understand better how technology can be used to promote positive outcomes for students. This knowledge will help JA reach more young people in more impactful ways as we look to the future.


DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION Junior Achievement USA is committed to ensuring diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is at the center of everything we do. We at Junior Achievement are dedicated to providing a positive, enriching learning experience free of bias that promotes greater economic opportunity and equity. Junior Achievement welcomes K-12 students, volunteers, educators, staff, and other partners and stakeholders, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, or any other legally protected characteristic.

Through JA’s strong curriculum and well-trained volunteers, my students were not only able to see themselves as entrepreneurs, but also as confident leaders... - Astra Zeno, Educator

JA USA has sponsored the Junior Achievement Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) Network. The JA JEDI Network is an employee-led group designed to foster diversity, equity, justice, and inclusion across the JA USA network of offices. The group is primarily formed to: Provide a platform for JA associates to discuss issues, share best practices, and advance initiatives that promote diversity and equity and to make JA a more inclusive organization; Engage a broader range of JA associates in projects and initiatives that have an impact beyond individual JA offices; Encourage advances in diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism, anti-sexism, and intersectionality in individual JA Areas and at the JA USA National Office. Foster a professionally equitable working environment for JA Areas and JA USA National Office. Encourage and promote acceptance of all associates in JA Areas and at the JA USA National Office. The JA JEDI Network Advisors is a group of JA Area Presidents and JA USA Senior Managers who will provide general oversight, advice, and counsel for the formation and operation of the JA JEDI Network and for individual projects initiated by the group. Looking ahead, we are committed to engaging our network of associates, board members, and partners in ongoing education opportunities, more diverse and inclusive programming resources, and the continuation of open dialogues across multicultural communities.
