About Company Program:
The corner stone of Junior Achievement, the JA Company Program is an after-school program that has groups of students in grades 8-12 working together to operate their own business venture.
The program allows students to take ownership of their success by giving them the resources necessary to run their business. Companies identify and create a product-based business using market research, elect an executive team, fabricate and sell their product; and close their business over the span of 18 weeks with the help of business advisors.
You will gain skills that can be used in any career! This program is open to anyone, not only students interested in business.
