Spirit of JA Celebration | Junior Achievement of Northern New England

Spirit of JA Celebration

DATE: Thursday, April 16, 2020
Where: Aloft Boston Seaport District
Time:  5:30 - 8:30 pm
Each year corporate and civic leaders gather for Junior Achievement's annual dinner to help build a better Northern New England. Attended by more than 320 people, the event raises critical funds to support the life-enriching programs that we offer to the children in our communities. 
In April 2020 we will be back with an interactive evening where discovering the JA mission is the theme. The night will include hands-on demonstrations, student participation and a program that will bring the impact and mission of JA to life. There will be a special keynote speaker, silent auction items, and we will recognize leaders who embody the spirit of community commitment to youth education.
We invite you to trade places and allow the students to become the teacher as you and other Boston business leaders experience the impact of sequential JA programming first hand, culminating with the Academy and Company Program students. Hear them pitch their product that was designed, manufactured, and marketed in only 13 weeks! Buy something if you feel so inclined. But certainly be prepared to be amazed by the sophistication and intellect of these teenage entrepreneurs. 
You will find a unique and individual dining experience with heavy hors d'oeuvres and a specialty cocktail fit to meet the theme. Bid on not-to-be-missed silent auction items and indulge in inspiring conversation as you bask in the glow of students' minds ignited.
Make your way to the main ballroom for dessert, a keynote speaker, and to honor members of our community who are truly embodying the spirit of community commitment to youth education. Allow yourself to be encouraged and motivated by the next generation, and the role Junior Achievement plays in helping them to succeed in a global economy!
We hope you join us for an evening that promises to be far more than just another gala. Come with an open mind and an open heart and see how JA TURNS I CAN'T INTO I CAN!
