Junior Achievement remains strong in Minot area schools
Junior Achievement has been in Minot for more than 20 years and continues to be a strong part of Minot public and private schools. This year, 129 classrooms heard the message of the free enterprise system in grades K – 5. Trained volunteer consultants are in the classroom one hour a week for five weeks. The outside expertise is vital to students as they learn about money management, city planning and assembly work among other topics.

Junior Achievement would not be possible without the volunteer hours and donations from businesses and individuals who take the time to make sure this happens. There is no cost to the schools, so JA relies on donations and grants from area businesses. Please take a moment to read through the list below of those businesses that generously donated money to help supply the $210 per classroom kits that supply the materials needed for the classrooms. Let them know how appreciative we are of their financial support. Also take a moment to thank the volunteers who spend their personal time teaching our future leaders.
