JA Events are so Awesome!
JA of Mid Michigan Events Throughout the Year
At JA of Mid Michigan, 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!
JA Starmakers Breakfast
The JA Starmakers Virtual Breakfast will be an entertaining, one-of-a-kind, story-telling event featuring JA Alumni, students, and volunteers.
JA Girls' Dream Fair: A STEM Experience
The JA Girls, Dream Fair will inspire seventh grade girls from the Lansing School District. In a one day format, JA will introduce these girls to women mentors who work in STEM related fields and show them the exciting possibilities for their future. As the research suggests this is key in increasing their pursuit of STEM careers. Guided by JA's It's My Future curriculum, girls will investigate, ask questions and be inspired to consider STEM for their future.
JA Virtual 5K
The JA Virtual 5K in 2020 was the first JA 5K! We want to keep the community together throughout the summer months when teachers and students are away from school. Registration includes a race shirt, bib, and commemorative medal. Stay turned for next year's race details!
