Your future VP of Sales may be sitting in a kindergarten classroom right down the street from your business.
At JA, we know the 21st-century working world brings with it a significant shift in what’s expected of successful workers and responsible adults. Our experiential learning process is based on three pillars that help better prepare our youth for these challenges.
Entrepreneurship — JA students recognize opportunities and organize resources to maximize innovative thought and creative activity.
Financial Literacy — Our students have the personal financial knowledge necessary to effectively meet personal fiscal challenges and obligations, take advantage of economic opportunities, and plan courses of action to achieve goals.
Workforce Readiness — JA students possess the knowledge, attitudes and skills required to demonstrate their readiness to successfully engage in meaningful and productive work.
