Junior Achievement's purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. JA of the Chisholm Trail's volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students in the community to dream big and reach their potential.
In 2019, Junior Achievement will be celebrating its 100th year anniversary — and celebrating 100 years of ensuring students are 100 percent ready for their futures.
JA of the Chisholm Trail's programs are delivered by volunteers. Volunteering in the classroom is one of the best ways to get involved. Teach an elementary, middle, or high school class and teach students entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and work/college readiness skills. JA provides all materials, including a brief training and step-by-step guides to prepare you to deliver the activities. All it takes is one hour to impact a child's life!

JA of the Chisholm Trail's signature events include the annual Ask Breakfast in the fall and the annual Trinity Invitational in the spring. They also host fun bowl-athon fundraisers throughout the year.
No membership fees are required to volunteer. However, if you are a young professional wishing to join the growing young professionals chapter, JA YES, that membership requires a $100 donation to cover chapter support.
