Supporting education, especially literacy, is the focal point of many Pioneers initiatives. Pioneers education programs address the needs of young people, with an emphasis on literacy, personal development, technology skills, and mentoring. We have several programs specifically designed for disadvantaged or disabled children.
Pioneers make their mark on school playgrounds, literally! As part of our deep commitment to education, you will see Pioneers painting maps of the United States or Canada on school playgrounds. These maps come with a curriculum for teachers to use to teach geography.
Junior Achievement (JA) relies heavily on volunteers to support their mission and programs and to make a difference with children — just like us! Our partnership encourages, supports, and educates children to flourish in the modern world.
