Who we are.

Since 1965, Junior Achievement of Greater Washington has inspired the next generation to be financially capable and tenacious, equipped with the tools to solve problems creatively, manage risk effectively, and welcome opportunity. Through experiential financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship K-12 programs and capstone experiences taught by volunteer role models from the community, they inspire the next generation to answer the demands of the 21st century economy with “I can.”

During the 2017-2018 school year alone, Junior Achievement of Greater Washington delivered its programs to more than 66,000 K-12 students throughout the region. In the last 50 years, Junior Achievement of Greater Washington has impacted the lives of more than 800,000 young people in the District, Maryland and Virginia.

Its best-in-business Board of Directors represents a “who’s who” of Washington business, and its proven-record of success in delivery of programs and corporate partnerships shows that there is no organization better-equipped to lead a major movement of youth preparedness in our nation’s capital.
