JA in a Day
JA in a Day is a fun, intensive crash course on business and economic concepts for school students, taught by the employees of a Junior Achievement of Eastern North Carolina (JAENC) corporate partners. JA's traditional school curricula are condensed into one, action-packed and exciting day-long experience. Students learn basic economic principles, how business works, career opportunities, regional, national and global markets and entrepreneurship. Classroom teachers request specific JA curricula for their students and JA volunteers present the lessons.
Junior Achievement of Eastern NC provides corporate volunteers with advanced training on the curricula. Volunteers are provided turn-key lessons, and team-teach with each other in specific classrooms alongside the classroom teacher. JA in a Day provides teachers and students with hands-on, interactive learning activities that tie into their social studies curricula and provides JAENC corporate sponsors a unique and rewarding team-building experience.
