JA & Starbucks MLK Week of Good

JA & Starbucks MLK Week of Good

Help teens by sharing your experience!

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy of service, Junior Achievement is proud to team up with Starbucks and provide you with an easy way to make a difference by sharing your expertise in a short blog that will help students accelerate their journey toward success.

What is the need?

All of us read and use math virtually every day. However, we also deal with money, jobs, and business every single day but these critical life skills are not always being taught in school. Junior Achievements Learning Experiences are designed to help address this disconnect and give students the tools they need to increase their chances of achieving financial and career success.

We need you! JA coordinates with volunteers like you to serve as role models helping to positively impact young people’s lives by sharing your experiences, and knowledge.

Get Started

Or maybe you have volunteered with JA as an adult and realized that the student wasn’t the only one learning something new that day. We’d love to hear your JA Story. Your story may be highlighted to encourage volunteerism in your community.
