Look what happens when you have a good time.
At JA, we host several signature events throughout the year to raise money to support our programming, as well as to engage the community in our educational work. In fact, nearly 50 percent of JA’s operating budget is raised through special events. So whether you’d like to get involved on an individual level or as a business through event sponsorship, JA offers several ways for you to support our work and have a good time, too.
