Junior Achievement of Middle TN

Who We Are

Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students in grades K-12 about entrepreneurshipwork readiness and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.

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

JA’s curriculum programs teach K-12 students about financial literacy, business and economic fundamentals, career exploration, and workplace competencies. JA’s highly interactive programs are presented by volunteers from the community who expose students to a ‘real-world’ perspective and serve as positive role models and mentors to students.  Guidebooks, lesson plans, and student materials are provided to the volunteer who visits the classroom 5-8 times during a school semester (30-45 minutes/visit; school selection and scheduling is flexible).

What We Do

Junior Achievement is the only organization entirely dedicated to preparing kids to lead healthy financial lives, inspiring and preparing them to succeed in a global economy.

At Junior Achievement, we give young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. 

Our corporate and community volunteers deliver relevant, hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. 

JA programs empower students to make a connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world – enhancing the relevance of their classroom learning and increasing their understanding of the value of staying in school.
