Junior Achievement of New Mexico
Junior Achievement of New Mexico prepares and inspires young people to succeed in a global economy. Junior Achievement uses hands-on experiences to help young people understand the economics of life.
Throughout JA's sequential and integrated kindergarten through grade 12 programs, students use information, apply basic skills, think critically, and solve complex problems.
Junior Achievement programs correlate to state and district educational standards. In studies of Junior Achievement’s K-12 programs by external evaluators, JA students demonstrate a significant understanding of economics and business knowledge and an enhanced desire to stay in school and pursue a career in business–-particularly those exposed to programs at consecutive grade levels.
