About

Are you an Entrepreneur? Want to share your story? National Entrepreneurship Month is a time to honor and celebrate entrepreneurs all over the country. The JA Launch Lesson initiative, will put entrepreneurs into high school classrooms across America during the week to share what inspired them to start their own businesses and to open students' eyes to the opportunities provided by entrepreneurship. JA knows that now, more than ever, young people need to learn what it takes to be successful in the business world so they can launch businesses and contribute to our global economy. Entrepreneurship Month accentuates current JA programs by bringing an inspiring entrepreneur into the classroom for one hour during the week to share his or her experience with students. The program is designed to be simple for the entrepreneurs to implement, but impactful for the teens participating. What makes this initiative different is that it is an intensive experience designed specifically for today's up-and-coming business owner who might not otherwise have time in his or her busy day to engage as a mentor to young people. JA believes it is important to provide young people with an opportunity to engage with entrepreneurs to help them better understand the challenges and benefits of starting a business.

The time commitment is 1 hour (class period). We have several schools who are interested in having entrepreneurs speak with their students. As of now the dates and times are pretty flexible.
