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.

You will gain skills that can be used in any career! This program is open to anyone, not only students interested in business.

Shoveling can be difficult, and even dangerous, for many citizens -- especially those with limited mobility or certain health conditions.
