Junior Achievement is dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed, through programs which focus on financial literacy, work and career readiness, and entrepreneurship. We envision a world in which young people have the skillset and mindset to build thriving communities.

We provide essential business and life skills which empower students to build their own successful futures and help to close the opportunity gap. Our programs are designed to meet the needs of local schools and students, through in-person or virtual delivery models. We are committed to delivering practical, relevant, and innovative learning experiences that prepare young people to succeed in their careers and to manage their personal finances.

JA of Greater Fairfield County Spotlight

JA PARTNER OF THE MONTH : Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo has been a loyal supporter of Junior Achievement of Greater Fairfield County for over ten years, through their financial and volunteer support. Most recently, we partnered with Wells to bring a select group of students from Central High School in Bridgeport on the experience of a lifetime. The student experience was a culmination of a series of sessions facilitated by JA and led by Wells Fargo volunteers, where the students learned about key aspects of financial literacy and the economy. The students visited the WF offices in Hudson Yards, New York City, where they visited the trading floor and engaged with various employees. Thank you to Wells Fargo for being a model partner and helping us fulfill our mission of helping young people develop the skillset and mindset to build thriving communities.
