JA Company Program
Featuring: JA Company Program
JA Company Program empowers high school students to fill a need or solve a problem in their community and teaches them practical skills required to conceptualize, capitalize, and manage their own business venture. (Grades 9-12)
When: Sunday, November 01, 2020
The JA Company Program addresses topics such as business ethics, teamwork, leadership, and goalsetting, as well as how students should execute the day-to-day operations of their entrepreneurial venture. Throughout the process of building their company, students collaborate, make crucial business decisions, communicate with multiple stakeholders, and develop entrepreneurial knowledge and skills.
Over the course of 13 weekly meetings, students elect their own leadership team, develop and execute a business plan, produce and sell a product, hold department meetings to report on their progress, and build relationships with other students and business professionals. With the guidance of their mentors, student participants develop the skills they need to be successful in their future academic and career pursuits.
