Junior Achievement

About Us

We are the Tufts chapter of Junior Achievement (JA), the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.

Junior Achievement programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.

JA’s unique approach allows volunteers from the community to deliver our curriculum while sharing their experiences with students. Embodying the heart of JA, 382,637 classroom volunteers transform the key concepts of JA’s lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world.

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities
There will be at least one “JA in a Day” event during the fall semester.  If any students are interested, we can work on establishing weekly (one lesson per week) visits to local schools.  The Junior Achievement general interest meeting will be held in Eaton 206 on Tuesday, September 18th from 10:00-10:30 PM.  We welcome all interested Tufts students and we are happy to answer any questions.
