Junior Achievement of Southern MA (JASM) is a local charter of the worldwide non-profit organization Junior Achievement.
We work with students in 21 cities and towns throughout Bristol and Plymouth counties. During the 2013-14 school year, JASM had volunteers in 21 towns in Southeastern Massachusetts.
JA reaches students enrolled in public, private, parochial, as well as after-school programs. Last Year JASM mobilized over 100 volunteers to donate 23,000 volunteer hours to local students, reaching a total of 4,435 kids.
Each JA program is taught by a community volunteer who delivers the curriculum while sharing his or her personal experiences with the students. No experience in the classroom is necessary! Most of our volunteers are from the business world and just want to make a difference. JA provides all of the necessary training and materials.
It costs about $850 to bring JASM to a classroom (about $40 per student). We receive its funding through corporate and individual donations, foundation grants and special events.
