Three ways to help:

1.  Provide professional volunteers

Each STEM Summit day needs approximately 30 business volunteers.   There is a  need for 10 career panelists who will spend about 8 minutes nine different times telling small groups of students about their career journey.










There is a need for others to assist with the competitions and experiments.  This is a full day assignment beginning at 7:00am and running till about 3:00pm.

2.  Provide materials and content input

The program is designed to be adaptable and to utilize the latest and greatest ideas from the business community.     Whether it is a product, or materials, or a concept, innovation is key to the ongoing success of the program.    In kind gifts help greatly to reduce overall costs.

3.  Provide financial support

Junior Achievement's annual budget is over $1.1 million.   90% of this funding comes from the business community.    The STEM effort is one of many programs that require financial support.

Sponsorship levels are available specifically for our STEM programs in JA BizTown and the STEM Summit.    Typically these range from $25,000 to $1,000.  Recognition is sized to the level of support.

  •      $1,000 level – Name of your company in all of the collateral materials.
  •      $5,000 level -  Smaller logo in all collateral materials.
  •      $10,000 level – Large logo
  •     $25,000 and up level – special recognition in BizTown and large logo

We try hard to provide scaled recognition based on the level of support.
