Junior Achievement 2012-2013 Annual Report

Junior Achievement (JA) has released their 2012-2013 Annual Report.  Below is a message from JA President and CEO, Jack Kosakowski, along with a link to discover the impact JA has had this year thanks to donor support:

“In the past year, Junior Achievement inspired more than 4.4 million youth across our nation with a message of self-efficacy and empowerment. Our experiential financial literacy, work-readiness, and entrepreneurship programs, delivered by our network of 202,000 volunteers, continue to provide students with role models and ways to achieve success. In this annual report you will read about how through our nearly 120 local JA Areas and with the support of key partners, we are helping to empower the future.Junior Achievement 2012-2013 Annual Report

For nearly a century, Junior Achievement has worked diligently to show students how they can achieve personal financial success and help drive economic growth through innovation and creativity. As we evaluate our programs and identify how we can best meet the needs of our students, we take a look back at our foundation of success and use it to inform our plans as we build toward an even greater future. In particular, the last year has seen a game-changing evolution in Junior Achievement’s program development and delivery strategy. The result is Junior Achievement USA’s 21st Century Education Blueprint, which represents a watershed moment for our organization.

There was much to celebrate in the past fiscal year as JA continued to demonstrate growth and provide stakeholder value across key metrics: the number of students served and the number of volunteers, classes and schools who are engaged with us. We grew our student reach by more than four percent and showed growth across other key performance indicators as shown in this report.

Junior Achievement would not be able to achieve these positive results without its donors, volunteers, and board members, or without the support of educators and other influencers. Thank you for your belief in and support of our mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.”
