Volunteer to help high school students experience the excitement of the stock market in an interactive, high-energy event

The Junior Achievement (JA) Investor Challenge is an exciting and educational "hands-on" introduction to the stock market.

400 OKC-area high school students experience the excitement of buying and selling stock shares on a live trading floor. Each team of four students is paired with an advisor from the business community.

Students experience a 60-day trading period in two hours, and the top three teams with the highest net-worth at the end of trading will be awarded JA Investor Challenge Medals. The top team will receive the JAIC Traveling Trophy to display at their school for 1 year.

The JA Investor Challenge provides a unique opportunity for students to learn how to work as a team, make decisions under pressure, and take calculated risks.

This event is an experiential learning opportunity that correlates to Oklahoma Financial Literacy Standard, "Saving & Investing." Students learn the risks of investing in the stock market and learn about other investing options.

If you would like to volunteer (registration, lunch, etc.) or serve as Team Advisor for a team of 4 high school students learning about the stock market, sign up now. The Junior Achievement (JA) Investor Challenge is an exciting and educational "hands-on" introduction for high school students interested in learning about the stock market. As a business mentor you will be there to guide your student team, serve as a role-model, and to keep your team energized!
