JA Events are so Awesome!
JA of Central Indiana EVENTS
At JA of Central Indiana, we host several events throughout the year to raise money to support our programming. These events also engage the community in our efforts to reach students! Whether you'd like to get involved on an individual level or as a business through event sponsorship, we offer several ways for you to support our work while having a great time!
Bid For The Cause
Junior Achievement is dedicated to educating students about career exploration, work readiness, entrepreneurship, financial literacy and philanthropy through experiential, hand-on programs. In central Indiana, we provide in school education programs to grades K-12 as well as our experiential capstone programs such as JA BizTown and Finance Park Virtual, which enforce the idea that kids learn by "doing" and we need your help to continue to raise the funds for our youth. We are asking for your generosity and donations for our 1st annual online auction.
This auction will take place December 4-7, 2020. All Bidding will be done through a cell phone or computer! Auction participants can bid from anywhere, anytime before the close of the auction right from their own device! This means, the auction item will be exposed to ALL JA supporters, friends and family.
