Junior Achievement Scholarship

Junior Achievement’s (JA) mission is to educate and inspire young people to value free enterprise, understand business and economics, and be workforce-ready. JA brings economics to life by providing K-12 students the marketable skills they will need for future success. Adult volunteers facilitate hands-on activities directly with students during the school day using curricula prepared by JA. Brian’s Foundation recognizes their efforts by presenting a cash award at Junior Achievement’s annual Business Challenge.
