JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT ROCKY MOUNTAIN | 2019 ANNUAL REPORT

1


Last year, Junior Achievement students Melanie Zhou and Mia Hayden faced immense tragedy. They lost one of their classmates to suicide. A few weeks later, they lost their principal to cancer. It was devastating to their school’s community, and Melanie and Mia noticed a need for stronger mental health support for students in their school. The school’s funds were limited, though. Using the skills they gained from JA classroom programs and JA Business Week, Melanie and Mia started a nonprofit business called Oasis. They would build physical mental health spaces in high schools across Colorado that offer students a haven to connect with their communities and feel empowered to ask for help without stigma or shame. Additionally, they would sell t-shirts and other merchandise, with half of the proceeds funding mental health resources in schools and half of the proceeds sustaining the business. Melanie and Mia spent a year putting their passion to work, and in September 2019, they won the grand prize at the Denver Startup Week Pitch Competition, a package of cash, product, and resources valued at $100,000. Their participation in Denver Startup week was made possible by JA. “None of this would have been possible without Junior Achievement. As JA students, we’ve learned how to advocate for our beliefs, network, and build a business from scratch,” Melanie and Mia say. “Most importantly, JA helped us turn tragedy into motivation to help others.” We know from data that students, like Melanie and Mia, who participate in JA programs reveal differences in their optimism about achieving future success. One reason is that they know they have the support of JA volunteers behind them, and they’ve developed the confidence and smarts to succeed. We believe that every child can succeed in the business of life with the right tools. It is up to us, as JA volunteers, JA donors, and JA advocates, to provide them those tools. Thank you,

Robin Wise

CLASSROOM PROGRAMS JA’s programs help prepare young people for the real world through volunteer-led interactive activities focused on financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and career readiness. Students develop new skills that prepare them for lifelong learning, entrepreneurial thinking, and self-sufficiency. 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 be economically successful.

JA Finance Park JA Finance Park, presented by Transamerica, 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. Students become an adult for the day while at the park, immersing themselves in a reality-based decision-making process addressing aspects of personal budgeting. JA also offers an online version of the program. JA reached 17,466 middle and high school students from 133 schools through JA Finance Park during the 2018/19 school year. 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. Seven in ten high school students gained financial confidence as a result of participating in JA Finance Park. 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.
