Overview

Self-reported by organization

Junior Achievement of North Central Ohio provides practical, hands-on educational programs to student in Kindergarten through 12th grade throughout our 12 county service.  

The twenty-four Junior Achievement elementary, middle and high school programs offered in North Central Ohio provide valuable experiential learning opportunities regardless of a student’s socio-economic standing, ethnicity, or gender. Educators working in urban, suburban, and rural neighborhoods throughout our service area request JA for their students; and we work with private, parochial and public schools in in-school and after-school venues to meet this demand.  A collaborative effort between the JA staff and Board of Directors along with our business and community partners made it possible for 700+ volunteers to be recruited, trained, and equipped with the tools needed to successfully teach JA programs to local students during the school year.
