Junior Achievement of Eastern Iowa

Junior Achievement of Eastern Iowa

Berthel Fisher Companies has been a  proud supporter of JA for many years. Junior Achievement’s mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.

Junior Achievement has a time-tested approach of engaging students with business and community volunteers and proven program content. From kindergarten through high school, students learn and practice financial literacy concepts with real-world relevance. The JA Pathways model recognizes that financial literacy is shifting to financial competency and well-being, and that we are taking strides now to equip the next generation with the tools and know-how for success in school and beyond. JA programs and content teach how to earn, budget, build credit, buy appropriate insurance, save, and invest, through hands-on learning experiences and useful resources. Students gain perspective of the connectivity within the global economy and its various contributors. To find out more about Junior Achievement click here
