Junior Achievement is the world's largest organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy. Through a dedicated volunteer network of current and retired business community leaders, Junior Achievement provides in-school and after-school programs for students. There is a focus on three key content areas: work readiness, entrepreneurship, with an emphasis on global economics and financial literacy.

In 2010-2011, JA's goal is to teach 9,800 students in Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties the economics of life. Today, 138 individual area operations reach 4 million students in the United States, with an additional 5 million students served by operations in 120 other countries worldwide.
