JA Company Program
JA Company Program meets the after-school programming needs of a diverse group of students by providing engaging, academically challenging, and experiential learning sessions in economic education.
JA Our Community
JA Our Community uses posters and games to offer practical information about businesses and the many jobs those businesses offer in a community. Students explore production methods through a simulation game, and they learn about taxes, decision making, and how money flows in an economy.
JA Our City
JA Our City introduces students to financial literacy and learning objectives for third–grade social studies, including the characteristics of cities, the importance of economic exchange, and how people and businesses in cities manage their money. Students will apply money-management strategies to personal and business accounts. The program is volunteer-taught and kit-based.
Start Up Program
The Start Up Program gives post-secondary students the opportunity to experience running their own company, giving them an insight into how their talents could be used to set up in business for themselves. The program was developed originally by Young Enterprise UK.
Personal Economics helps students assess their personal skills and interests, explore career options, learn jobhunting skills, and discover the value of an education. They also learn about budgets, personal and family financial management, and the use of credit. The activities reinforce economic concepts taught in career, life skills, and other social studies electives.
Economics of Staying in School
The Economics of Staying in School comprises several activities to help students understand the cost of leaving school early and the benefits of obtaining an education.
JA Innovation Camp High
At the Innovation Camp (sometimes also called Innovation Challenge, 24-hour Camp etc.) students gather in order to address a specific business challenge to come up with ideas which would solve the problem.
JA Job Shadow
JA Job Shadow prepares students to be entrepreneurial thinkers in their approach to work. In-class sessions prepare students for a visit to a professional work environment, where they will face a series of challenges administered by their workplace hosts. Students learn how to research career opportunities and the skills needed to land and keep their dream job.
