JA in a Day!
Junior Achievement of Idaho to run first JA in a Day
We are excited to announce we have scheduled our very first JA in a Day. Galileo STEM Academy in Eagle will be the site of this innovative program.
JA in a Day is a unique initiative that allows volunteers to teach all of the lessons of Junior Achievement's six elementary school programs in an intensive and effective one-day effort.
During the course of JA in a Day, students will learn about various aspects of financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. For instance, students in the second grade will learn about "Our Community" and will have a chance to see how money moves through a community, creating jobs and generating tax proceeds that pay for schools, parks and streets. In fifth grade, students will study "Our Nation," where they will begin to learn about economic concepts such as opportunity cost and supply and demand.
