Bringing Business Education to the Classroom

Through JA Days, volunteers visit area schools where they bring business education to the classroom by interweaving concepts of practical economics, career awareness, and entrepreneurship. Embodying the heart of JA, classroom volunteers transform the key concepts of our lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world.

 

JA Day with High School Leaders

JA High School Leaders places teenagers in the leadership position where they become the educator for the day. The high school students teach K-5th grade students lessons that provide a strong foundation for making informed decisions later in life, as well as sound money management. Through partnerships with organizations such as JROTC, FBLA and other student groups, this program allows students to work in teams to become experts around these valuable concepts while also developing valuable communication and creative thinking skills.
