Time: 12:00 AM ET
The JA Company Program is the founding program of Junior Achievement and we are excited to bring this deep-dive and impactful program back to our local students! The JA Company Program empowers high school students to solve a problem in their community by building and managing their own start-up business. This free virtual after-school program is open to all high school students in Southern Massachusetts. The program will run from November through April with options to participate on Wednesdays or Thursdays from 4:00PM-6:00PM. A Spanish Bilingual version of the program - Programa La Compañía JA – will run on Tuesdays from 4:00PM-6:00PM starting in January.

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.
