JA Company Program 

JA Company Program® helps student entrepreneurs launch an actual business from idea generation, product development, capitalization of the venture, marketing and sales strategies, supply chain, and financial reporting all with the mentorship of a JA business volunteer.


JA Company Program will provide a relevant and authentic learning experience for young people that fosters a strong entrepreneurial workforce in America. Upon completion of the program, students will be able to identify the key elements of organizing and operating a business, and consider creating their own startup. 



The goal of the JAECO NextGen Entrepreneurs' Challenge is to balance the business achievements of each team as a whole with the members' individual personal development.  Therefore, for a team to win this award it is not sufficient just to run a financially successful JA Company or to have created an exciting product or service; JA Company members must also demonstrate that they understand how and why the company performed as it did and can present themselves professionally.

Bats Around Town

Our business is creating homes for bats. We're making the houses out of pine wood, wire mesh, we are using screws to hold it together and torching for an eye-catching look and as a natural sealer against the elements. This helps promote a natural solution to the use of pesticides as the bats we're housing eat the pests that the pesticides are targeting.
