Junior Achievement USA is highlighting each of its 22 programs through a series of blog posts to build awareness for the breadth of our programs. The all new blended-learning JA Personal Finance will be unveiled at the National Leadership Conference on July 23 so stay tuned!

JA Personal Finance focuses on earning money; spending money wisely through budgeting; saving and investing money; using credit cautiously; and protecting ones personal finances.Following participation in the program, students will be able to recognize the fundamental elements of smart personal finances. They also will be able to apply those elements to a personal financial plan that allows them to set specific goals for their lifelong financial needs and desired quality of life.

JA Personal Finance targets high school students. It is composed of five sessions, each 45 minutes long. Materials are packaged in a self-contained kit that includes detailed plans for the volunteer and materials for 32 students.

All JA programs are designed to support the skills and competencies identified by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills. JA programs also correlate to state standards in social studies, English, and mathematics, and to Common Core State Standards.
