For over a century, JA Worldwide has stood as one of the largest youth-oriented organizations, offering education and mentorship to kids aged 5-25, all over the world. As an NGO, JA Worldwide has helped millions of students reach their potential by introducing them to hands-on, experiential learning in the realms of business, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy.
Founded in 1919 by Horace A. Moses, Theodore Vail, and Winthrop M. Crane, JA Worldwide started as a place to educate young people moving from rural areas to bigger cities about the complex world of business and finance. Since then, the organization has now grown to serve over 10 million students in over 100 countries, with a focus on teaching these young people everything they need to know in order to become the next generation of business and economic leaders.
The organization focuses on early exposure to things that will increase a child’s “work-readiness”, and have a variety of different programs centering on different aspects of business. Their ultimate mission statement is to “Inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.”
