The future of American business is at stake.
“Tomorrow’s leaders need exposure to global economics, business and culture that business volunteers can easily bring to the classroom from their daily experience.

Nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of Americans believe that if we fail to take action and reform our education system, our ability to remain globally competitive will be compromised within the next decade. Fortunately, you can make a difference by supporting JA, the world’s fastest-growing nonprofit dedicated to inspiring young people to succeed in a global economy.
So what can you do to help? Take your pick!
As a nonprofit, we count on financial support from the business community, private and community foundations, special events and individuals. All money raised is utilized locally to provide programs to Metro Denver, Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming students. Through our dedicated volunteers, we provide our programs to students at no charge. And every year, we receive more requests than we’re able to fulfill.
With training from JA, you can be in the classroom, helping children learn important concepts surrounding entrepreneurship, financial literacy and workforce readiness.
