Junior Achievement was founded in 1919 by Theodore Vail, president of American Telephone & Telegraph. It's first program, The Company Program, was offered to high school students on an after-school basis. In 1975, the organization entered the classroom with the introduction of Project Business for the middle grades. In the last 25 years, Junior Achievement has gradually expanded its activities and broadened its scope to encompass an ever-widening student population.

Locally, Junior Achievement of South Florida was founded in 1959 by the Fort Lauderdale Rotary Club and served just 373 high school students during its first year. Programs now span grades K-12, with age-appropriate curricula designed to teach elementary students about their roles as individuals, workers, and consumers and to prepare middle grade and high school students for key economic and workforce issues they will face. Junior Achievement programs reached 17,087 Broward and South Palm Beach County students during the 2006-2007 school year. It also received a Bronze Summit Award, based on Financial Solvency, Program Impact, Program Quality and Overall Management Effectiveness.

We hope this site answers any questions you may have about our organization and entices you to learn more! In order to fulfill our core purpose of inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy, we are looking for volunteers year-round to help in a variety of ways.
