JA in a Day

JA In a Day

JA in a Day® enables companies to present the entire elementary school curriculum over the course of five hours. Although the JuniorAchievement curriculum is traditionally presented once per week for five weeks, this one-day event is a great way to impact the community while providing employees with a team-building and morale boosting experience. Volunteers present the interactive curriculum and make a significant impact in one day. Teachers see the benefit of having a business professional in their classroom for an extended time period to provide students with the JA experience.
