Board of Directors

“Students demonstrate an amazing transformation when they participate in JA programs, truly connecting the dots between what they learn in JA – the fundamentals of financial literacy, jobs, business – to real life and their futures." — JA of Oregon and SW Washington board member

Board Leadership

Junior Achievement of Oregon and SW Washington is governed by a board of directors that includes members from the local business and education community. JA also relies on an associate leadership council that provides additional event and volunteer support.
