PwC - JA Build Your Future

JA Build Your Future is a new app that helps teens, their parents and teachers break down the cost of achieving young people's career goals into real, easy-to-understand numbers.

Created jointly by Junior Achievement USA and PwC, JA Build Your Future helps teens explore potential future income from a desired career and evaluate the cost of post-secondary education to help them make informed decisions.

In JA Build Your Future,teens can assess more than 100 careers, see what levels of education are required, then calculate the cost of education. Teens can then adjust the level of money they and their parents may contribute, combined with student loans they may need to secure. At the end of the exercise, teens are given a Return on Investment (ROI) score between 1 and 5. The score helps teens and their parents create a roadmap for success that will take them from choosing a career to calculating the cost of achieving it.

JA Build Your Futureworks on Apple and Android phones and tablets. Get the app now at Google Play.
