JA programs prepare students for their futures by focusing on the three pillars of success: financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship.

Upcoming Programs:

BizTown Students Banking

Freelance Day in JA BizTown

Students step into the world of business where they learn how to work a job, how to run a business, and how the local economy works.

Boy Scout

Scouts Personal Management Merit Badge

Scouts can earn their next merit badge by exploring personal finance topics and gaining the knowledge needed to achieve their future financial goals.


JA programs’ unique approach allows volunteer role models from businesses and the community to deliver our curricula while sharing their stories with students. Embodying the heart of JA, volunteer role models transform lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them that they can make a difference in the world.



Standard Alignment

JA programs align with National Common Core Standards and California State Academic Standards. With the exception of JA Company Program, all semester-long high school programs are A-G certified. View all JA program correlations here.
