For 97 years, Junior Achievement of Rhode Island programs have empowered students throughout the state by teaching them about money, careers and business ownership.
In the 2017-18 school year JA programs reached over 10,000 students. In the coming year, JA aims to provide programs to over 14,500 young people and will continue growing our base until every eighth grader in the state has had a program.
Together, we are empowering an entire generation's attitude to change from "I can't" into "I can."
By participating in Achieve-A-Bowl, you help us put students on the path to success! Whether their journey leads them to pursue their career or continue their education at a college or university, our JA students will be better prepared because of you!
Achieve-A-Bowl is Junior Achievement of Rhode Island's oldest and largest community fund raising event, our supporters have raised more than $1.9 million in its 34-year history!

It's simple, just register a team of five (or multiple teams if your an organization) and each team commits to raise $500. You can meet your goal quickly and easily if each bowler has 10 friends who donate $10- and we provide you an online tool to reach out to all your friends at once! You do not need to be an accomplished bowler to participate! We expect over 500 bowlers from all over Rhode Island to participate in our 34th Annual Achieve-A-Bowl!
