Coming to JA-Rocky Mountain in August 2021!

The JA Dream Accelerator is a digital-first learning experience that connects students with the history of Colorado business innovation and a world of high-demand careers in real time.

Inside, students can explore three distinct and engaging labs that harness today’s technology to help prepare them for tomorrow’s economy.

Finding Your Passion Lab

Upon entering the JA Dream Accelerator, students take a digital occupational and personality profile. Their profile and potential career interests are then registered onto a chip-enabled badge, allowing for a personalized experience throughout the JA Dream Accelerator, tailored to each student’s passions.

Aspiring to Achieve Lab
