TOMORROWS ARE IMPORTANT

JA'S HARD PIVOT TO ONLINE PROGRAMMING IS MEETING THE NEEDS OF STUDENTS TODAY

 

 


Right now in our history, today is uncertain.

But tomorrow represents hope and promise. COVID-19 has quickly and profoundly changed our daily lives. Schools have now closed for face-to-face learning through the end of the school year. As unsettling as this time has been to us as adults, consider the impact this is having on thousands of young people who are at home.

Junior Achievement of the Michigan Great Lakes and it's District offices have come together to provide resources for parents, teachers and students. We are doing this so our kids can spend more time planning for and dreaming about tomorrow, and less time worrying about today. We are committed to doing this until we can all be certain again.
