Our mission is to empower young people to own their economic success.

Our curriculum is focused on teaching financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and workforce readiness through turnkey lessons delivered by corporate or community volunteers.

*About JA Summer Institute
This summer, 60 high school students will join Junior Achievement of Greater Boston in-person for 5 days for our annual JA Summer Institute. During this program, students will engage in a series of interactive company-led workshops focused on learning the basics of personal finance, the stock market, the design thinking process, pitching a product, career exploration, interviewing skills, and more. Students will take what they've learned throughout the week and apply it to the culminating session, Speed Networking, where they will connect with business professionals from a variety of industries.

    Junior Achievement (JA) provides programming both in-school, at out-of-school locations, and virtually through partnerships with corporate and community organizations. While participating in JA programs, whether one-day or semester-long, students are often photographed, videotaped, and/or recorded on a virtual webinar while in attendance. JA, school administrators, and some corporate partners request that students and their caregivers submit a photo release prior to participation. Photos, videos, and recorded webinars of students are often taken to document JA events, and are subsequently used for promotional and social media purposes.

    I understand that Junior Achievement events are photographed and sometimes documented and recorded on video which, is distributed for promotional purposes. Some JA events attract attention from the media, so there is a possibility that students will be featured in marketing materials. I grant permission to be photographed, and for such photographs, video, and recording footage to be released, for these promotional and educational purposes.
