JA programs postponed during COVID-19 national emergency: This is a difficult time for our community and communities all over the world. JA-Rocky Mountain’s top priority is the safety and well-being of our community partners. Therefore, JA-Rocky Mountain is postponing or cancelling programs originally scheduled through April 30. While we cannot implement JA programs in schools right now, JA is offering free videos and other digital resources for all ages to help students and their families. You can find these resources here.
Our programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.
JA’s unique approach allows volunteers from the community to deliver our curricula while sharing their experiences with students. Embodying the heart of JA, our classroom volunteers transform the key concepts of our lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world.
