Coronavirus (Covid19) Update
As the world continues to face the challenges and uncertainties of COVID-19, Junior Achievement of South Central PA is extending our pause. We have intentionally limited our communications during this time.
We did want to make you aware of the following changes to our April programming and spring events:
All JA programs are suspended through April 30.
Our signature fundraising event, "A Global Tasting", originally scheduled for April 18, will take the place of "Brews Around Town" on September 12.
The STEM Corporate Challenge will be moved to the fall with dates to be determined.
The launch of the JA STEM Pre-apprenticeship Certification program scheduled for April 24 has been postponed to the fall.
Now more than ever, it is our hope that you continue to focus on what is truly important... you and those you love. When the time is right, we will be here... ready to continue our mission of inspiring students.
Thank you for being a valued part of our community, and stay well.
Resources for Parents and Educators
Though schools are closed, Junior Achievement is here to support students, parents and teachers during this period of uncertainty. Learning can continue and JA is providing access to learning experiences that students can do on their own, with a parent or other caring adult, or with teachers via a digital/virtual environment.
Resources are organized by school level and can be used whether or not you've engaged in a JA program in the past. We will be continuing to add to the content in the coming days so check back often.
JA Volunteers inspire students
JA's unique approach allows volunteers from the community to deliver our curriculum while sharing their experiences with students. Embodying the heart of JA, our 7,000 volunteers transform the key concepts of our lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them that they can make a difference in the world.
