Junior Achievement began as a collection of small, after-school business clubs for students on the East Coast of the United Statesmarker.

Junior Achievement's global headquarters is located in Colorado Springs, Coloradomarker. The organization merged its U.S. and international operations in 2004, and currently reaches nine million youth in 123 countries.
