Welcome to Junior Achievement
of Northern Nevada
Junior Achievement of Northern Nevada’s goal is to educate every child in Northern Nevada about free enterprise. We do this by giving both classroom and hands-on experience that provides students a better understanding of the life of business and the Business of Life!
Junior Achievement educates and inspires young people to value free enterprise, business and economics in order to improve the quality of their lives.
Junior Achievement is the world’s largest and fastest-growing non-profit economic education organization. Our kindergarten through twelfth grade programs are taught by volunteers from the business community, and reach more than 8,500 kindergarten through twelfth grade students in Northern Nevada. Our office is located at 785 West 6th Street next to the Girl Scouts in Reno, Nevada. Through our programs, we not only educate local students about business, but we are able to take business leaders, parents, retirees, and many others from the community and put them right into the classrooms of our local schools. Our children are able to hear how our enterprise system works from those with experience and those who are willing to share with them.
JA takes volunteers from the community and puts them face-to-face with our students through the simplest form of human contact—sharing.
