2017-2018 JA Impact
Middle School Program
As a result of Junior Achievement USA's partnership with the Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency prevention, these after-school programs have been developed for elementary, middle grades, and high school students.
Schools and community organizations have the opportunity to bring JA’s high-quality programs to their students after school. These programs were designed specifically for this environment. Each program offers Common-Core aligned curriculum and grade-appropriate content. JA AfterSchool programs enable educators and community volunteers to bring JA’s interactive curriculum to students in a variety of settings.
JA More than Money
3rd - 5th Grade
JA More than Money teaches students about earning, spending, sharing, and saving money. It also identifies businesses that students can start or jobs they can perform to earn money. Students play a game to learn money-management skills and to better understand the role and importance of money in their lives.
JA It's My Business
6th - 8th Grade
JA It's My Business! encourages students to use critical thinking to learn entrepreneurial skills. Those skills include knowing customers' wants and needs, launching effective marketing, and creating detailed business plans. By examining the characteristics of successful entrepreneurs, students learn that a belief in one's self can make positive things happen in life.
