The Field of Junior Achievement Club Work


Centers Engaged in Achievement Work
For the first five years concentration has been the watchword.
Twenty-six centers in six states were carrying on Junior Achievement Club Work on January 1, 1925. Four of
these centers have Junior Achievement Foundations, locally financed and organized with full-time directors in
charge to carry on Junior Achievement Club Work. Civic service organizations such as Rotary, Kiwanis and Lions
Clubs, represented by their committees, are in charge of the work in three centers. Local leaders with the aid of
Bureau specialists conduct the club work in 19 other communities.

Membership
Four thousand eight hundred fifty-nine boys and girls of the Northeastern states are engaged in Junior
Achievement Club Work. Each carries out a work enterprise through the year in some line of industry or
homemaking. Many thus get their first thrill of real accomplishment.

108
Leadership
Three hundred seventy-five volunteer leaders are each directing one or more club groups. These men and
women in trades, industries and in homemaking, who have spent a lifetime of training and practice in their
vocations, are now passing their skill and knowledge on to the on-coming generation. Of the clubs, 246 are under
Foundation directors, 91 under central committees and the remaining 76 directly in the charge of local leaders.

Summary of Enrollment

The four Foundations enroll 2,461 club members, or about 50 percent of the grand total. Thirty percent of the
entire membership is enrolled in the three cities where the work is sponsored by central committees. A complete
