Junior Achievement is dedicated to providing a positive, enriching learning experience that's free of bias to promote greater economic opportunity and equity, so that every student can succeed in the business of life. The JA curriculum teaches students how money, careers, and business ownership work. 

JA Dallas listens to its employees, to the students it serves, and to other voices in the community. It understands life experiences that are different from its own. JA Dallas expands the diversity on its board and staff to better reflect the communities it serves. Lastly, it acts with purpose and intention to help create lasting change.

The best way to get involved is to become a JA volunteer. JA Dallas now has virtual volunteering options as well. With the help of volunteers, it is proven that role models teaching JA programs can help create a simple shift in a young person’s mind.

JA needs enthusiastic volunteers who are willing to share their life experiences, and also who have a willingness to teach children about how they took chances and shot for the stars. This simple act alone can create a positive attitude and help students dream bigger. Junior Achievement of Dallas provides the training, curriculum, and a classroom ready to meet each and every one of its volunteers.

Each year, the Junior Achievement of Dallas Business Hall of Fame celebrates and honors the achievements of the community’s most influential business and philanthropic leaders. The night to remember sets the stage of inspiring future leaders — young people today who will lead this growing city in years to come.

JA Inspire is is a powerful, multi-faceted, virtual career exploration event for Dallas-area high school juniors and seniors. It is presented by a coalition of educators and industry leaders and led by Junior Achievement of Dallas.

JA BOLD Girls Summit empowers female high-school students through a transformative learning experience that inspires them to dream big, and prepares them to succeed in the next phase of life. Thanks to the generosity of JA corporate partners, there is no cost to participate.
