Proceeds from this competitive dirt track tricycle "race" benefit JA. Join us in Fort Collins for the fun!
Members of JA Engage attend various networking and social events hosted by the group throughout the year.
True learning comes from doing. JA Finance Park, presented by Empower Retirement, gives middle and high school students the opportunity to make the same financial decisions adults make each month. By providing students with a dynamic, technologically advanced environment where they take control of their decisions, JA Finance Park helps students build financial skills for life.
The JA Stock Market Challenge, presented by Bank of America, is an innovative, interactive, high-tech event where students experience two months of simulated trading condensed into two hours of excitement. The frenetic atmosphere ensures urgent and intense trading to simulate a real trading floor guaranteeing students a Wall Street-style learning experience.
Forget everything you think you know about summer camp. JA Business Week, presented by Arrow Electronics, Inc., is like nothing you’ve experienced before. It’s a knowledge-building, confidence-boosting, network-growing, college-application standout of a summer experience. Unlike any camp, this program allows you to explore leadership concepts and build confidence alongside Denver’s most dynamic business leaders.
The JA Bowl-A-Thon is not only a fun event, it is also JA’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Thousands of participants from hundreds of companies bowl to help JA provide financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurial programs to local students. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the JA Bowl-A-Thon will be used to help JA reach 138,000 students during the 2016/17 school year.
Maybe you struggled with debt and you want to help others avoid that situation. Maybe you had a mentor who changed your life and you want to pass along that gift. Or perhaps you fondly remember having JA as a kid. Maybe you always wanted to be a teacher, but ended up in engineering. It could be that you are a current student who is motivated to show up instead of drop out. We want to know why Junior Achievement matters to you.
Owning a car, applying for a job and saving for college are just a few of the life-impacting decisions young adults have to navigate. Thankfully, there’s JA My Way. JA My Way is an online destination for teens to learn about careers, starting a business and managing money. The experience combines games, rewards, information and social media to help teens explore these topics in a fun and exciting way.
