Junior Achievement

Providing financial literacy to ensure young people have the skills to thrive

With the support of the KPMG U.S. Foundation, KPMG is proud to support Junior Achievement (JA) in its mission to empower young people to develop the tools they need to positively impact and transform their own financial futures.

Year after year, KPMG partners and professionals volunteer their time to a variety of JA programs including classroom visits and virtual programs to teach and mentor students, with topics ranging from budgeting to economics to entrepreneurship.

KPMG volunteers also work hands-on with students through JA Finance Park®, JA’s capstone financial literacy program which engages secondary students in real-world, interactive personal finance projects. In late 2018, the KPMG U.S. Foundation gave a $1.74 million grant to JA USA which focuses on enhancing and expanding JA Finance Park® curriculum, including a 2.0 version geared toward high school age students.
