Junior Achievement recently launched its newest program, JA Career Success, and with it introduced the organization’s first digital app, JA Success Park. Both efforts were made possible through a $1.1 million grant from Accenture announced earlier this year.
The app aims to extend the learning opportunity, allowing students to connect within and beyond the classroom through interactive challenges. JA Success Park is designed as an amusement park where students apply their knowledge of the 4Cs (critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity), best business practices, good customer service and conflict resolution at each attraction to unlock fun throughout the park. JA Success Park is available on Google Play (click here) and the Apple App Store (click here).
“This effort combines skills building with technology to help students across the country access critical life and career needs,” said Michael Scimo, North American human capital and diversity lead, Accenture. “Working together, Accenture collaborated with Junior Achievement to create a scalable, digital program that will enhance the education of young people looking to connect to the workforce in a meaningful way.”
