Junior Achievement

District Manager of our local chapter, Jonathan Gorst, says the importance of keeping the younger generation in our valley and how important that is for our future economy. They encourage the community to reach out to them directly.

According to their website, Junior Achievement has contributed to the economics and business education of young people throughout the world. They say their unique system provides the training, materials, and support necessary to bolster the chances for student success.

Junior Achievement of the Roaring Fork Valley does not receive any funding from the National umbrella. All chapters function independently. Junior Achievement emphasizes the importance of their volunteers. 

Junior Achievement of the Roaring Fork Valley's purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. They believe that they are creating business leaders of the future.
