Junior Achievement of Northeastern New York, Inc., now celebrating over 65 years in the New York Capital Region, is one of 109 licensed areas of Junior Achievement USA. Our purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in our global economy. Presently we pursue our mission through the delivery of sequential programming for youth at all levels from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Through the use of age-appropriate curricula, JA programs begin at the elementary school level, teaching children how they can impact the world around them as individuals, workers, and consumers. JA programs continue through the middle and high school grades, introducing students to additional key economic and workforce issues they will face in the future.
