Annual Report 2016-2017



Dear Friends of JA,
Jakayla Dixon is a 16-year-old high schooler from Fort Worth, Texas. As a young girl, she would visit her aunt, who is blind. During these visits, Jakayla's aunt would ask her to help pick out clothes, making sure they were color-coordinated. While Jakayla was always happy to help her aunt, she knew that there was a need for a product that could help all visually-impaired people match their clothes without having to depend on the help of sighted friends or family members. 
Today, Jakayla is the head of "Feel the Color," a Junior Achievement student company that develops braille and coded fabric tags that can be stitched into clothing to help the visually impaired color-coordinate their clothes. The company has won many local and national competitions, and Jakayla, with the help of her Junior Achievement volunteer and mentor, is now working to turn her idea into a commercially viable product outside of JA.  
We are often asked, "Why JA?" Stories like Jakayla's help answer that question. Junior Achievement changes peoples' lives. We hear about it every day through countless stories like Jakayla's. We see it when we look at our evaluations that show we are influencing critical behaviors related to education attainment, money management and career aspirations that will help ensure our students' future success. We know it from research that shows our JA alumni are more likely to have completed a four-year-degree, started a business or escaped poverty. 
This 2016-17 annual report will cover a lot of the details about our organization's finances and our initiatives. But these details shouldn't take away from the big picture: JA's programs and the people like you who support them, are changing people's lives.
This is "Why JA?" It works.

Culverhouse College of Commerce -
The University of Alabama

The Present Teaching the Future

In the 2015-2016 school year, a total of 243,756 volunteers across the nation stepped up to teach 4,845,904 students from kindergarten to high school real-world concepts in areas of financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship with programs provided by Junior Achievement (JA).
For a group of Business Honors Program (BHP) students from the University of Alabama's Culverhouse College of Commerce, studying advanced principles of business was not enough. The BHP students decided to take a reverse role, going from college student to teacher for their local community of Tuscaloosa.
The Culverhouse Business Honors Program "provides opportunities for outstanding Culverhouse undergraduates to enrich their business education. The program emphasizes class presentations by students, faculty, business leaders, and campus recruiters, as well as independent research and project work over two years of undergraduate study."
These bright business students; studying accounting, marketing, management, finance, and economics, dedicated a total of 1,500 volunteer hours to various nonprofits in their community. Fortunately, one of the nonprofits was Junior Achievement in Tuscaloosa. College students who participated in teaching students in their local schools not only shared their passion for business but they were also able to impact the future of the Tuscaloosa community.
Senior and finance major Cameron Hudson's experiences through BHP taught him more than just how to calculate the time value of money or financial ratio analysis. "BHP has been a wonderful opportunity to network for my future career, gain hands-on experience through project work and make a difference in the Tuscaloosa community," said Hudson.
It was through their hands-on experience that these college students saw an area for further involvement. At the end of teaching their JA program, the BHP students found another way to give back by taking it upon themselves to recruit more Junior Achievement volunteers. Their volunteer recruiting efforts brought in enough volunteer power to cover more than 400 JA classes, which meant even more students in their community would learn the necessary life skills through financial literacy programs and work readiness curriculum.
Carla Harris, the senior program manager with Junior Achievement in Tuscaloosa, stated, "The reason that I love Business Honors is because of that group of students—they're self-starters; they're dependable."

Jane Carlson

Advocating Life Lessons

Jane Carlson, a Career Education Coordinator at Thousand Oaks High School in California has experienced the impact of Junior Achievement programs from parents AND students.
Through Junior Achievement programs Carlson feels that her students are not only more knowledgeable about their personal finances and the importance of saving, but they are also more aware and prepared for what it takes in order to succeed in the "real world."
Adding to student success she's observed as a result JA programs, one of her students revealed that she aspired to start preparing for her future right away. "She was inspired to make it a habit starting now of paying all her own expenses for clothing, entertainment, and her share of the family utility costs, rather than wait until she is older to adjust to paying those expenses. She now contributed to her family by giving her parents a monthly check. Little does she know that they are secretly saving that money for her college tuition," reported Carlson.
As her current students prepare for high school graduation, she has received requests from parents for their child to revisit Junior Achievement programs. "Now that graduation and college expenses are approaching, the parents are wanting their seniors to go back to JA Finance Park in order to build upon their budgeting skills," Carlson said. 
"The parents report how surprised they were when they picked up their students after JA Finance Park and heard the words, "Thank you, I didn't realize how much you have to pay for our living expenses." The students became more appreciative of the money spent on their behalf," said Carlson. 
Her enthusiasm and engagement with Junior Achievement within her high school classroom has resulted in her winning  Junior Achievement of Southern California's Teacher of the Year. Welcoming Junior Achievement programs into her classroom is something she plans on continuing as she's experienced the value behind preparing students for their futures with JA on her side.

Jakayla Dixon

Feel the Color

Jakayla Dixon of North Texas is changing the way visually impaired people choose their clothing.
When Jakayla was a young girl, she would visit her aunt in Louisiana. Her aunt became blind as an adult, and would often ask for Jakayla's assistance in selecting clothes that matched color-wise. Jakayla often wondered how blind people who didn't have assistance were able to match their clothing. 
This idea stayed with Jakayla as she grew older, and it became a driver behind the creation of her student company when she joined the Junior Achievement Company program as a high school freshman. Like any startup, the JA Company Program aims to solve a problem or fill a need in their community through entrepreneurial endeavor. The program helps do this by promoting concepts like developing a business plan, learning financial tools, sourcing product through a supply chain, and promoting it through sales and marketing. 
Through research into the subject, Jakayla found that the only solution for the visually impaired community was a tag made from aluminum that was etched with braille. Not wanting to wear metal on her own clothing, Jakayla began to brainstorm other possibilities, which led her to her idea, patented cloth tags that can be used by the blind to match clothing. 
Through Junior Achievement of Chisholm Trail in Fort Worth, TX, Jakayla has been able to meet with clothing industry professionals, as well as business management executives, in order to expand her understanding of running a successful business. JA has also assisted her in protecting her idea by having her meet with an attorney to help her patent her tag design. 
As of now, Jakayla is working on innovating her idea by creating a tag from silk that will have the name of the color embroidered in both Braille and the English Alphabet letters, to help those visually impaired and those who are colorblind. She hopes to partner with clothing designers in the future so that she can provide her product to all visually impaired people. 
Her innovative design and concept earned her the Junior Achievement Company of the year in her region. In June of 2017, she and four others represented the company at the JA National Student Leadership Summit in Washington, DC, where they won the FedEx Access Award for their innovative business. 

Visionary Profiles

The best collaborations start with a strong foundation—and the relationships between Junior Achievement and its partners are no exception. The profiles below highlight some of our great efforts with donors and what they are helping us achieve!


American Express

Paying it Forward

A two-year gift of $300,000 from American Express is providing crucial funding for Junior Achievement (JA) to further enhance and improve volunteer experiences and relationships. American Express' support allowed for JA to add a new position – Vice President of Volunteer Engagement. 

This position offers strategic direction and assistance to JA volunteers by ensuring that educators and volunteers are adequately prepared, trained, and supported throughout their JA experience. This VP position supports all 109 JA offices across the U.S. to continue the growth and relationship-building of new national volunteer partnerships.
"Junior Achievement volunteers are important mentors for young people, bringing our programs to life. Each year, nearly a quarter-of-a-million JA volunteers share their experiences and skills with students while delivering our programs, teaching them how to manage their money, succeed in the workforce, or start a business that creates jobs and grows the economy," said Jack Kosakowski, President and CEO of Junior Achievement USA. "American Express' commitment has been critical to providing essential support for this volunteer effort."
In addition to supporting the new volunteer engagement position, American Express served as the presenting sponsor of the JA Volunteer Summit in both 2016 and 2017. The one-day event took place in New York in March of both years to recognize and celebrate the top corporations who volunteer in support of JA all over the country. At the event, American Express was recognized with the bronze U.S. President's Volunteer Service Award for providing more than 5,000 volunteer hours through their employees' efforts.


Flying Into the Future

JA Finance Park Virtual ® is being impacted through a generous contribution from Delta Air Lines. The grant assists JA USA as it adapts the JA Finance Park Virtual program into a new format in order to ensure the lesson continuation in classrooms across the country.


JA Finance Park Virtual is a financial literacy simulation that introduces students to personal financial planning and career discovery. This program assists students in making informed financial decisions while engaging them with a hands-on learning approach through a budget simulation.


It is with this JA program that students are able to learn about the world of business while allowing them to put what they've learned about economic concepts and budgeting principles into action. Delta Air Lines was a natural partner for this effort, considering the thousands of hours its associates dedicate to volunteering for JA programs each year.


In addition to its financial contribution, Delta Air Lines worked behind-the-scenes to advance several technological aspects. This included sharing expertise related to web development, design architecture and overall functionality. Small enhancements were made to improve user experience and access, which is vital to student success. Within the past year, JA Finance Park Virtual has impacted more than 75,000 students, in over 3,000 classrooms in 45 JA Areas.


Continuing their support for JA, Delta Air Lines contributed additional funding for the 2017 JA National Student Leadership Summit in Washington D.C. and also sponsored the Delta Social Impact Award. This award recognized the JA Company students who best demonstrated their ability to address a local, national, global, or social need/ problem.


During the Summit, Delta associates engaged students with a seminar focused on the importance of customer experience and social impact for their company. Students then brainstormed new product ideas for use onboard Delta flights and presented their ideas to the Delta seminar leaders.


Santander Bank

Investing in Tomorrow

A grant of $350,000 from Santander Bank is aiding the implementation of JA financial literacy programs throughout the Bank's U.S. northeastern footprint. During the 2016-2017 school year, Santander supported JA programming for more than 8,200 students in more than 350 classrooms, with the help of 662 Santander Bank volunteers. Santander Bank associates are passionate about getting into the classroom and sharing their experiences with JA students. 
Santander District Executive, Ed Symons said, "The curriculum is so hands-on and the students love it. It made teaching very easy and fun!" 
This past year, because of Santander's commitment to volunteerism, they received the bronze U.S. President's Volunteer Service Award at the 2017 Volunteer Summit.
J. Chris Quint, a Santander Bank Manager, and JA volunteer reflected, "Growing up, my parents were never good with finances. I take pride in giving tomorrow's generation the tools to help build the skills needed to provide themselves with a better life." 
With Santander Bank's grant, Junior Achievement can continue making an impact on the financial readiness of young people across America.






Junior Achievement is not only one of the largest youth-serving organizations in the country, we are also one of the most impactful. Below are a few statistics that detail how JA is changing lives.
