5th Year exists to address a serious need in our area. Each year, thousands of Northwest Ohio high school students graduate without a clear path forward. The prohibitive cost of college, unfamiliarity with job and career options, and a lack of certain business, financial and life skills leave many young adults feeling as if they have few choices. 5th Year’s ten-month program helps graduates transition from high school and home to independence and a thoughtful exploration of professional opportunities. Our unbiased, non-judgmental approach gives students the insight they need to make practical decisions about their future.

What is Junior Achievement? 

Junior Achievement is an organization dedicated to helping students develop a clear vision of future success and a defined path on how to get there before they graduate high school. We engage students in unique learning experiences to ignite a spark of interest in a possible career pathway, illuminate that pathway, and inspire students interests in various career opportunities.
