Junior Achievement of Georgia

Junior Achievement

Founded in 1964, the Northwest Georgia District is housed in Dalton. The district serves Whitfield, Murray, Gordon, Floyd, Dade, Chattooga, Gilmer and Pickens counties. The office merged with JA of Georgia in 2003 and is governed by a board of directors comprised of business and community leaders.

During the 2012-2013 school year, 8,185 students learned skills they will use for life due to the efforts of our volunteers, board and staff. We had volunteers from 40 area businesses as well as parents, retirees and education students from Dalton State College. This past year JA of Northwest Georgia partnered with the following community groups: Dalton/Whitfield Chamber of Commerce, Gordon County Chamber of Commerce, Murray County Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis Club of Dalton, Kiwanis Club of Calhoun, Community Foundation of Northwest Georgia, Dalton State College.
