Junior Achievement


Junior Achievement is an educational nonprofit bringing work readiness, financial literacy and entrepreneurial programs to the classroom, from kindergarten through high school.


In partnership with Fifth Third Bank and the School City of East Chicago, it is the largest organization in the world dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs. It also helps prepare area students for college readiness.
