The JA Company Program Blended Model unlocks the innate ability in students to solve a problem or fill a need in their community through an entrepreneurial spirit.

Volunteers will mentor high school students as they create and lead their student run enterprise.

The JA Company Program materials are digital, allowing JA volunteers access to a digital learning environment where they will help manage their student's business.

Volunteers will:

  • Receive ready-to-use materials provided by JA
  • Teach 7-13 class sessions to a classroom of high school seniors
  • Receive a brief training/orientation
  • Volunteers will coordinate their schedules with JA and the teacher and are not required to attend each of the 13 sessions.
  • With a volunteer, students will be eligible for the JA Company of the Year Competition in April 2017
