Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Education, Educational Services, Youth Development - Business

Mission: Junior Achievement connects the business world with young people in grades K-12 to provide substantive, hands-on, and interactive economic education. JA volunteers go directly into the classroom to share their knowledge and experiences with students who are eager to learn about the world in which they are quickly becoming a part. Schools and teachers welcome Junior Achievement's fresh approach and curriculum, and students respond to a new face in the classroom.

Rating: 2

I read the Form 990 for FY09. There are three programs listed. One of these, the Hispanic Outreach, is run by employees and seems to be correctly accounted as Program Expenses. The other two programs are reported as 100% volunteer run. Yet despite the programs being run by 100% volunteers, there are substantial Program Expenses for salaries, pension plan, other employee benefits, payroll taxes, accounting, advertising, office expenses, IT, occupancy, travel, depreciation, and insurance. To me, all these are either Management or Fundraising Expenses, not Program Expenses, if run by volunteers.
