Our increasingly digital culture seems to lend itself to entrepreneurship more than any other time. That opens a lot of doors for the youth of today, but being successful in any kind of business is about more than negotiations and trademarking good ideas. Financial literacy is a fundamental skill that is central to the success of any entrepreneurial endeavor, and is one that too often gets passed over.
Junior Achievement (JA) Worldwide is an organization with the mission to change that. Powered by over 450,000 volunteers and mentors, JA Worldwide reaches over 10 million young people each year. By inspiring our youth with goals and tools they need to succeed early on, their chances of succeeding increase dramatically as they reach the age where they’re ready to put those ideas into the world.
