Junior AchievementJA Academy
  • JA Academy was developed in the spring of 2007 in
    response to the need for an after school
    mentoring program for local high school students
    that combines Junior Achievement quality
    financial literacy and workforce awareness
    programs with college access skills and
    preparation. Unlike traditional Junior
    Achievement programs that are offered in a public
    high school or youth agency setting, the JA
    Academy model distinguishes itself by taking
    advantage of its location on college campuses,
    incorporating college volunteers and business
    professionals in the learning process. The
    unique pairings of undergraduates and corporative
    leaders, coupled with the learning experiences
    that are available on college campuses expose
    students to valuable post secondary educational
    and career options. The JA Academy model has been
    nationally recognized by JA Worldwide as the 2007
    recipient of the prestigious MetLife
    Entrepreneurial Award and the Collaboration
    Award.
