About Us

Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students about work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs. We are in 118 countries around the world and reach over 10 million students per year.

At Junior Achievement of Northern Alberta & NWT, we reach over 25,000 students per year and we’ve got big plans to expand our reach in the coming years. This is all possible through a partnership between the business community, educators and volunteers who work together to inspire young people to reach their dreams and tap into their potential. Our approach allows volunteers to deliver our curriculum-based programs while sharing their own experiences and knowledge. The value is in the ‘real world’ perspective.
