Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

It is the goal of Junior Achievement of Alaska to serve 32,000 students in Alaska by 2026.

Key strategies include providing relevant program materials to teachers, schools, and school districts; providing trained, qualified volunteers in the classroom for program delivery; leveraging the resources of the board if directors; and providing employers with a qualified pool of future employees.

Junior Achievement of Alaska is capable to serve the schools in Alaska because of the strong partnerships with area businesses, organizations dedicated to employee development, economic development, and youth development; and the organization's long-standing history in Alaska since 1973.

Junior Achievement is on track to reach its goals for student outreach and evaluation. The number of students who have participated in programming during the 2020-21 school year represents approximately 9% of market penetration for enrolled students statewide.
