JA Worldwide is one of the largest global NGOs dedicated to addressing fundamental social and economic challenges of young people by educating and empowering them to transform their future and own their economic success.
As one of the world’s largest youth-serving NGOs, JA Worldwide prepares young people for employment and entrepreneurship.For 100 years, JA has delivered hands on, experiential learning in financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. We create pathways for employability, job creation, and financial success.Each year, our network of over 465,000 volunteers serves more than 10 million students in over 100 countries.
Through the delivery of cutting-edge, experiential learning in financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship, we effectively broaden the canvas of possibility for young people and enrich their ability to both engage in their own economic development and contribute to the strength of their families, communities, and economies.
Our enterprising alumni are more employable, start more businesses, see longer and better business results, and earn higher salaries than non-JA students. What makes this success possible? Our focus on three core areas of hands-on, experiential business education.
