JA has provided me with a realistic view on what is needed to start a business from the ground up and how to effectively execute a business plan.
It's really amazing to see the light bulb come on and watch the students start discussing and debating about different companies and investments!
Thank you so much for coming in and for all of your hard work with our kids. The kids absolutely loved you and really enjoyed the program. We would LOVE to have you back next year!
From this JA program I learned more about all the things my Dad has to make decision about and all the hard work he has to do in his business. I really want to work in my Dad’s construction business soon!
My favorite part was learning how to start managing our money and be careful about getting debt so we don’t get into money trouble.
I absolutely love being a volunteer for JA. It’s an amazing opportunity to help our youth to grow and become successful adults.
JA has played a huge part in making me what I am today. They have shown me what the future could hold for me if I work hard and pursue my passion.
JA taught me growth and comfort do not co-exist. This is a lesson I've carried forward to address new challenges and succeed in a constantly changing world.
My time with JA was the foundation on which I built my analytical and leadership skills, and this was the spark that ignited my passion for finance.
It's always a pleasure to be in the classroom and share my knowledge and experience with the students. I believe in the goals of JA, and enjoy people and other volunteers.
The students who have gone through a JA program are more confident in their abilities, more willing to challenge themselves and seek leadership positions, and tend to set higher goals for themselves in the future.
