JA impacted 306,245 area students in more than 13,926 classrooms during 2014-2015.

Our volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12thgrade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential. With the help of 12,005 volunteers, JA students develop the skills

JA Inspire provides students with insight into a potential future

Over 18,000 students will participate in JA Inspire during late January and early February.  With the career information learned during this fun and exciting day, students will be able to map out a plan for success.  Students will better understand the work needed and the courses to take in order to be prepared for their chosen careers.  Whether off to University, Junior College or Trade School each student needs to be prepared to meet the challenge those schools will require.  The adjacent video, shown to students at the event, provides insights into several of the participating companies.


At JA, we host several signature events throughout the year to raise the financial resources needed to support programming for 310,000 students annually.  Please consider sponsorship and participation in our upcoming event:
