Today's students, tomorrow's leaders!
What is Junior Achievement Singapore?
We believe in the boundless potential of young people. We share their passion for excellence, respect their talents and creativity, celebrate their honesty and integrity, harness their desire or collaboration, and create opportunities for hands-on learning.
Junior Achievement Singapore uses hands-on experiences to help young people understand the business of life in partnership with business and educators. Junior Achievement Singapore brings the real world to students, opening their minds to their potential and preparing them for the workplace.
A want versus a need. How to balance a checkbook. Don't you wish that someone had taught you those things as you were growing up? Now there is someone. YOU.
All we need is your enthusiasm, life experience, and a willingness to teach children about how you took chances and shot for the stars. Junior Achievement provides the training, curriculum, and a classroom ready to meet you.

Why Junior Achievement in the classroom?Junior Achievement's unique delivery system provides the training, materials, and support necessary to bolster the chances for student success. At your invitation, we help arrange for business people and local community leaders to visit your classroom a few times or throughout the semester. They volunteer to share their experience with your students, all while teaching sound economic principles and reinforcing your class curricula.
JA programs help prepare young people for the real world and how to get, keep and excel at a new job.
JA programs teach skills needed to become successful entrepreneurs and be successful in the business world. Our programs instil creativity, innovation and thinking out of the box.
Understanding of basic financial concepts and the ability to use that information to make wise personal and financial decisions.
I thoroughly enjoyed volunteering for this program. The class was an absolute joy to work with. The content of the program also allows for the students to think out of the box and challenges them to think about non-academic topics and be creative. I believe that this sort of exposure to such topics would aid in their critical thinking skills.JA SINGAPORE VOLUNTEER
This competition gives us a platform to practice and is a great channel to learn more about business. Before inventing a product, there must be a need of the product. We must be firm of our ideas and product while presenting. Another thing: always try to figure loop holes of our plan to constantly improve ourselves.STUDENT
It’s very helpful and useful in our journey of learning. It gives us great experience in learning about business as well as international trade. It’s great for our futureSTUDENT
There was a great deal of satisfaction and a real sense of contribution at the end of the program because it was very hands-on. Last but not least, it presented a non-work related challenge and contributes towards personal developmentJA SINGAPORE VOLUNTEER
