100 years. 100 countries. 100 million success stories.
As one of the world’s largest youth-serving NGOs, JA prepares young people for employment and entrepreneurship. For 100 years, JA has delivered hands on, experiential learning in financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. Supported each year by nearly half a million corporate volunteers, and reaching more than 10 million young people, JA is one of few organizations with the scale, experience, and passion to build a brighter future for the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, makers, and managers.
Now more than ever.
Technological advances are emerging faster than ever. New industries and automation require new skills. And the largest generation in history will enter the workforce in five years, with youth unemployment already reaching an all-time high in many parts of the world. JA’s skill-building programs—for students as young as 5 and as old as 25—are more important now than ever before in our century of innovation and achievement.
Building the skills that employers seek.
JA equips young people from every corner of the world with the employment and entrepreneurship skills to thrive right now . . . and in the future. By building a host of skills and nurturing self-belief, JA prepares young people for the future of work, teaches them how to think entrepreneurially, and ensures that they have the tools to be financially capable adults.
Impact across six continents.
Our 100 million living alumni are a testament to JA’s lifelong impact, serving as a global force for good. Many start businesses that serve a social need, solve a local problem, or inspire others to reach their potential. Others donate time and money to their communities. Still others give back to the next generation of young people by volunteering and mentoring.
The next 100 years.
At JA, we’re laying the groundwork to serve exponentially more students by supporting innovation throughout our network, making investments in technology and human capital, and executing partnerships with select organizations that benefit from our unparalleled access to schools and students.
An investment in JA is an investment in the success of the next generation. Your funding allows us to accelerate our growth, support innovations in technology, or sponsor a specific project or initiative.
Every year, JA helps 10 million young people realize their goals.
