The JA Company Program

The JA Company Program unlocks the innate ability in students to fill a need or solve a problem in their community by launching a business venture—unleashing their entrepreneurial spirit.
The JA Company Program has been revised for the 16-17 school year. It will be a significant contributor to the entrepreneurship cultivation wave making its way across America. The re-imagined experience will spark the entrepreneurial spirit in students by helping them understand how to incubate and foster a successful enterprise. Volunteer
role models will nurture these future business leaders by infusing 21st century technology, promoting contemporary teaching methodology, and providing young people opportunities to learn in ways that are both measurable and memorable.
The ultimate objective is to provide a relevant and authentic learning experience for young people that fosters innovation, ingenuity and a strong entrepreneurial workforce in America.


Junior Achievement of North Central Ohio is partnering with interested schools and businesses to launch JA Company Programs throughout the 12-county area. If you would like to know more about how to get students in your community involved, contact Michael Gaffney at or 330-434-1875 ex. 18.
