4/17 /19 We are proud to empower

the next generation with Junior Acheivement

Every child has a dream, a vision for what their future can be. Our mission is to provide students with opportunities to make those dreams a reality. 

At the JA Discovery Center of Atlanta, 6th & 7th grade students participate in an immersive simulation that enables them to develop skills to successfully navigate today’s complex economic environment and discover how decisions today can impact tomorrow.


When – April 17th     8:00 am - 2:30 pm


As a volunteer, you will share your life experiences to mentor and coach students through their day and help to create a more authentic simulation.  No matter what your profession, your life experience and determination to succeed means you can serve as a volunteer.  Our volunteers provide those "ah ha" moments daily as they help students discover the value of themselves, their education, and their future possibilities. If you have ever had a job or paid a bill…you will be a GREAT volunteer!
