JA Company Program at Tri-Valley High School

JA Company Program® at Tri-Valley High School

The JA Company Program gives students the chance to put ideas into action by creating and running their own startup. With the help of a student group and volunteer mentors, students will create, manage, and liquidate a business in 13 weeks. Any student at Tri-Valley High School can register for this free entrepreneurial after-school program. Capacity will be limited to 25 participants.

In JA Company Program, students will not only learn how to run a business, but will also meet new friends, connect with mentors, network with professionals and gain the skills and experience to help land their first job.

An information session will be held November 13th, 2019 for interested parents/guardians and students. You can sign up to attend here: http://bit.ly/TriValleyInfoMtg
