Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    To be recognized by businesses, educators and policy makers around the world as the premier organization for inspiring and preparing young people to become successful, contributing members of the global society; and for uniting people of all nations around the common goals of creating jobs, building stable economies, and providing higher standards of living.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    One of Junior Achievement's greatest assets is the dedication of its many volunteers--people who volunteer in their local schools, making a difference one class at a time.
    Our volunteers embody the heart of Junior Achievement.

    Junior Achievement's unique delivery system provides the training, materials, and support necessary to bolster the chances for student success. We help arrange for business people and local community leaders to visit your classroom a few times or throughout the semester. They volunteer to share their workforce experience with your students, all while teaching sound economic principles and reinforcing your class curricula.

    Nine out of 10 teachers believe experiential learning is effective in getting students interested in higher education and careers.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    We couldn't possibly impact 17,000 kids this year without our volunteers. We make sure volunteers are well prepared to mentor a class by providing the training and curriculum they need. Volunteers provide their time, energy, and life experience to show these kids that with hard work, anything is possible. Volunteers guide students through topics on financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship.

    At Junior Achievement of Idaho, we host several signature events across the Treasure Valley, Magic Valley and Eastern Idaho to raise money and awareness to support our programming needs.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Our goal is to reach over 25,000 students for the year of 2015-2016.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    We have had an overwhelming request from teachers for our JA Programs.

    We still need more volunteers for spring 2016.

    We still have a large goal of individual giving to reach.
