Leadership Statement:

As a JA alumni, I am proud to have the honor of leading JA in its birthplace,Springfield,MA. I feel our organization is a leader in delivering high-quality, relevant educational programs founded on three pillars: financial literacy, entrepreneurship and workforce readiness. I feel that an investment in JA is an investment in the future. I know because people invested in JA when I was a younger and I feel many of the qualities I bring to my work stem from my JA experience. 93 years ago, three Western Massachusetts leaders: Horace Moses from Strathmore Paper, Theodore Vail, of AT&T and Senator Murray Crane from Crane Paper came together to create Junior Achievement, an organization dedicated to youth development, entrepreneurship and financial literacy. As Mr.Vail noted, ""teaching youth this country's economic way of life and showing them the benefit of hard work will give them self-reliance and independence."" In 1919, JA had three full-time staff members, a $250,000 budget, 22 volunteers and served 50 youth. Today, JA of Western Massachusetts has one full-time staff, 3 part time staff, a budget of $350,000, over 400 volunteers and serves nearly 9000 youth. JA succeeds through an innovative partnership between the business community, educators and volunteers, helping young people connect with relevant learning and the importance of staying in school. JA inspires students to develop competitive skills and confidence. Their success bolsters the local workforce and contributes to economic growth. Junior Achievement instills confidence, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a competitive edge.
