Review for Junior Achievement of Western Massachusetts, Inc., Springfield, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became involved with JA in high school and participated in the JA Company Program for three years, being elected President of my JA Company, Trayco, my senior year. I ran into one of my Trayco members last weekend and he started talking about how great JA was. In college I had the oportunity to volunteer for JA and today I teach at least 5 JA programs a year. For me it's the connection with our youth. Sharing my knowledge and using JA's great materials to help our young people become financially literate, explore career opportunities and develop their leadership skills makes me feel like I'm making a difference. Each year in Western Massachusetts over 400 people like me, step up and volunteer to teach JA in local classrooms. Last year JA volunteers reached over 10,000 students in Western MA. JA is a terrific organization that has been changing peoples lives for over 93 years!
