JA Engage Young Professionals

JA Engage, Junior Achievement

JA Engage is a community of emerging young leaders who share a passion for inspiring and empowering children through education. We connect Denver Metro young professionals to the Junior Achievement Mission with fundraising, networking, and volunteering opportunities.

JA Engage Events

JA Engage Young Professionals come together quarterly for fun events held at a different location each time. Events include networking with other Denver area young professionals and members of JA’s Board of Directors, opportunities to connect with JA’s mission, as well as panel discussions on leadership, career building, and entrepreneurship, and more!
