Do you have a business challenge to solve, projects that have been on your to-do list for months, research that needs to be done or social media and marketing strategies you'd like to implement? JA Career Bound graduates are ready to help.
James Donnelly, Founder and CEO of Castle Group, spoke out at a recent JA board of directors meeting in support of hiring trained high school students, like JA Career Bound graduates for internships. "The high school students we have hired have proven to be very valuable employees.  At Castle Group we are committed to running a robust internship program so we can build a pipeline of employees for our company." 

At our recent JA Business Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony, City Furniture offered an internship to Geomani Brooks, a JA Fellows student who received the Horatio Alger Scholarship.  This is the third internship opportunity City Furniture has provided to JA Career Bound graduates!
