JR Executives works to improve educational opportunity for students through scholarships, academic achievement initiatives, mentoring opportunities and youth leadership development. Our goal is to equip our youth for competition with the best and the brightest in the nation and the world. It is also to close the persistent achievement gap that continues to separate African-American and Latino students from Asian and white students.

Each business attire section is led by an experienced JR Executive Leadership staff member or community leader. Two days a month (minimum) and weekly assignments will be devoted to each component of the program.
