Our Outreach

Organization Overview

JA of Oregon & SW Washington was established in 1950 and founded nationally in 1919. JA Worldwide™ is headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Student Impact

Junior Achievement of Oregon & SW Washington will reach more than 40,000 kindergarten through twelfth-grade students this year alone.

Program Scope

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.
