JA Archives and Oral History

Did you know that George H. W. Bush gave his first presidential speech on education at a Junior Achievement event?  Are you curious about how JA went from one program to many programs both in person and virtually? 

Program of Work

Our focus during the 2022-2023 year includes five key initiatives:

  1. Support JA USA locally to impact nationally.
  2. Keep the history of JA alive and easily available to all.
  3. Provide members the information they need to connect with others.
  4. Use social media and other tools to identify and connect with people at all levels leaving JA.
  5. Ensure sufficient funding to carry out the work of the organization.

The Coronavirus pandemic of 2020-2022 has created major challenges for JA professionals.  The JA Staff Alumni Network will use the generous funds raised during the Support Our Successors campaign to provide scholarships for JA staff to attend the 2022 NLC and NLC’s in 2023 and 2024.
