JA in a Day
JA in a Day is a special Junior Achievement program delivery method that facilitates the partnership of an elementary school with a business, college or other volunteer group. Like all JA programs, volunteers involved in this program help to educate and inspire youth about free enterprise, business and economics.
JA in a Day is different from other JA programs only in that the entire JA elementary school program is covered in the course of one day in the school. At the end of the school day, the students will have completed all five JA lessons and will have earned their JA certificate. The JA staff will work with the host school and the partnering group of volunteers to organize the date, arrange a school, and train the volunteers.
The following is a sample schedule for a “JA in a Day” program. The times will vary depending on the school’s hours and any allowances for special classes (i.e. art, music) students may have scheduled during the day.
