"As a Junior Achievement classroom volunteer for many years, I can testify to the power of the program. First, the program represents genuine learning for children and often motivates them to think about careers they may have never heard of. Second, J.A. brings successsful adults into our schools who support education and quickly develop positive relationships with kids. Finally, J.A. represents a vibrant partnership among the Lincoln community and our schools. We are excited and proud to be associated with a program that does make a difference."
-Steve Joel, Ed.D, Superintendent, Lincoln Public Schools

Junior Achievement is the 4th “R” in school subjects; we provide relevance to what students learn in school by linking an education to future opportunity. Junior Achievement curriculum comes alive when volunteers from the business community use Junior Achievement materials as they lead students through innovative lesson plans. By introducing students to financial literacy, money management, entrepreneurship, and business ethics, JA volunteers are helping to ensure the future success and vitality of Lincoln. Volunteers act as invaluable role models for students by sharing professional life experiences that help students understand how education directly affects their future work life.
Junior Achievement of Lincoln's volunteers annually reach over 27,000 young people in 111 public and parochial elementary, middle and high schools throughout Lancaster, Cass, Saunders, York, Buffalo, Hall, Hamilton and Nemaha counties.
For more than 45 years, Junior Achievement of Lincoln has been supported by local businesses, foundations, community organizations and individuals. Junior Achievement is entirely supported by voluntary private sector donations. No United Way or tax monies are involved. Our programs are always provided at no cost to schools, so we depend on your generosity to continue inspiring Lincoln’s future leaders.
