JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT ROCKY MOUNTAIN | 2017 ANNUAL REPORT

Through JA programming, Hannah Phillip and her classmates wrote a business plan; developed a budget; produced, marketed and sold water bottles; and made a $4,300 profit. Hannah and her fellow entrepreneurs went on to donate the money they made to help bring safe drinking water to communities in need around the world. Hannah credits her JA volunteers and mentors for helping her understand business, identify her future career path, and learn how to channel failure into personal growth and success. “We failed a lot while we were working on our business, and I learned that you often have to fail in order to improve and be successful. That was an important lesson for me,” said Hannah. We know from data that students, like Hannah, who participate in high school JA programs reveal differences in their optimism about achieving future success. We know JA students feel more personally in control of their destiny and aren’t afraid to take risks. One reason is that they know that they have the support of JA volunteers and donors behind them, and they’ve developed the confidence, know-how and determination to succeed. This JA Spirit is embraced not only by our students, but also by the JA staff. JA has always had tremendous outcomes for kids, but after four years of disciplined, rigorous study, we are ready to evolve from an organization that heavily weighted its success by the number of students reached, to an organization that is focused on achieving significant learning outcomes. This year, JA will launch and execute an organizational strategy that is laser focused on elevating students outcomes by reaching the right student, at the right time, with the right program. Your support is inspiring students like Hannah to embrace entrepreneurship and business ownership, and encouraging a belief in self-reliance and the opportunity to make a difference in the world. Your support is also inspiring us to raise an even higher bar on the expected outcomes for students served across the Front Range and in our mountain and Wyoming communities. Our refined business model will lead to a greater ability to fill gaps in a student’s economic education, greater efficiencies, more volunteer satisfaction, and a deeper connection to the organization and its mission. Your support is an investment and we want to provide the highest return possible, now and in the future.

Thank you,

CLASSROOM PROGRAMS JA’s programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate and manage wealth, how to create jobs that make their communities thrive, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. JA’s unique approach enables volunteers from the community to implement our curricula while sharing their experiences with students. Embodying the heart of JA, our classroom volunteers transform key concepts into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can earn their economic success.

JA Finance Park JA Finance Park, presented by Empower Retirement, helps students build a foundation upon which they can make intelligent financial decisions that last a lifetime, including decisions related to income, expenses, savings, and credit. The experience begins in the classroom with an in-depth curriculum that culminates in a day at the park. During their visit to JA Finance Park, students become an adult for the day and immerse themselves in a reality-based decision-making process addressing aspects of personal budgeting. JA also offers an online version of the program. During the 2016/17 school year, JA reached 19,877 middle and high school students from 152 schools through JA Finance Park. The program is offered at no cost to students or schools thanks to the support of volunteers and sponsors. Students report that JA Finance Park encourages them to change their spending habits and to not live beyond their means. Nearly two thirds of high school students found their experience made them more confident in planning for their financial future. JA Finance Park also improved students’ attitudes toward work and education, particularly among low-income students. Their attitudes about career development, education, confidence and leadership increased dramatically compared to their higher income peers.

Students apply what they learn in the JA Take Stock in Your Future classroom lessons about individual equities, the impact of the economy, geopolitical events, and market sentiment, all against the backdrop of competing with their peers.

“JA is the reason I have found my passion, the reason I have done all the things I have, and the reason my dreams have become a reality.

JA Apple Society The JA Apple Society was created to thank and recognize our amazing classroom volunteers for their dedication to JA’s mission. This exclusive recognition is earned through a steadfast commitment to engaging with students multiple times a year. Volunteers receive a special gift after reaching 250, 500, 750, 1,000 and 1,500 students. There are currently 831 members of JA Apple Society. To date, 16 enthusiastic volunteers have each shared their time and talent presenting JA programs to 1,500 or more students. Joe Acker
