Bowl for JA

Returning to a bowling alley near you in 2022.

Bowl for JA
Bowl for JA is a fun, relaxed, bowling outing for your staff, colleagues, friends, or family.  It brings together Richmonders of all walks to build a team, bowl for fun, and boost our student programming.
For over 30 years, Bowl for JA has been raising funds to provide curriculum to local students in financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship education. It is vital to implementing our mission, raising enough funds to allow any of the below:
  • Allow more than 5 elementary schools to participate in JA in a Day courses.
  • Fund nearly 24 classes to participate in a JA Job Shadow, which pairs classrooms with real businesses for a day of discovery and hands-on learning.
  • Purchase 800 program kits to be used by volunteers in our classroom-based programs.
  • Bring a JA program to over 1,300 students.

At Bowl for JA, you'll:

Have two hours of unlimited bowling with shoe rentals
Have fun with your co-workers
Network with other local area companies
Win prizes, play trivia games, compete in fun contests
Raise money for our local students!
