their future JA PROGRAMS

Elementary School Programs The elementary school programs include six sequential themes for kindergarten through fifth-grade students. Students learn the basic concepts of business and economics and how education is relevant to the workplace. The sequential activities build on studies from each preceding grade and prepare students for secondary school and lifelong learning. JA Ourselves™ JA Our Families™ JA Our Community™ JA Our City™ JA Our Region™ JA Our Nation™ JA More than Money®

Middle School Programs Junior Achievement has several highly effective programs for middle school students that reinforce the value of work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy. Students are introduced to many economic concepts and useful facts about the working world. The middle school programs help pre-teens make difficult decisions about how to best prepare for their educational and professional future. The programs supplement social studies curricula and develop communication skills that are essential to success in the business world. JA Economics for Success® JA Global Marketplace® JA America Works® JA It’s My Business!®


High School Programs As high school students begin to position themselves for their future, there are many unanswered questions about what lies ahead. Junior Achievement’s high school programs help students make informed decisions about their future and foster skills that will be highly useful in the business world. With a range of different programs, Junior Achievement teaches concepts relating to entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and work readiness. JA volunteers bring real-life business experience and guidance into the classroom at a time that represents an essential crossroads for young people.

Volunteer Requirements: • New volunteers attend a training session. • Teach five to twelve one-hour sessions using JA materials and hands-on activities. • Share personal experiences with students to bring the curriculum to life.

JA Excelling through Ethics The JA Excelling through Ethics program impacted over 6,100 South Dakota high school students in 23 communities during the 2011-12 school year. Over 300 executive-level business leaders visited high school classrooms to challenge students to understand what ethics means, to help students realize and explore options when making decisions, and to encourage students to always select the ethical choice in their individual decision making processes. JA Excelling through Ethics evaluation results indicated that students, volunteers, and school administrators find the JA Excelling through Ethics program beneficial and necessary for high school students.

Each year, the JA Excelling through Ethics program allows our students to interact with community members about a topic that is not often discussed in high school. They gain a better understanding of community members and a new insight into a perplexing issue. sharon knowlton Principal, Madision High School
