JA of Oregon & SW Washington was established in 1950 and founded nationally in 1919. JA Worldwide™ is headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Junior Achievement of Oregon & SW Washington will reach more than 40,000 kindergarten through twelfth-grade students this year alone.
More than 1,550 classrooms in 83 area school districts and private schools will integrate Junior Achievement programs into their daily curriculum.
Junior Achievement of Oregon & SW Washington’s in-class programs are largely implemented as a result of the generous time donated by our more than 3,200 area volunteers.
Junior Achievement relies entirely on private & corporate contributions, as well as the funds raised by our more than 2,000 special events volunteers. We are not a United Way agency and do not receive government funding. As such, funds raised through our Annual Fund Drive Campaign, Summer Golf Classic & Bowl-a-Thon events provide a significant source of revenue for our organization and for the local students we serve.
