I can ... get my college degree. go to grad school. start my own business. rule the boardroom. be financially capable. be tenacious. achieve my dreams. do anything I set my mind to.


At Junior Achievement of Greater Washington, through our relevant, authentic, and experiential financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programs, we are inspiring a generation to be financially capable and tenacious.

Together, we are working to give our region's youth the hope to see a brighter future and the skills to answer the demands of the 21st century economy with "I can."
