students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

learn in school and how it can be applied to the real world. They teach
students how to manage their finances, develop workforce skills, and
become entrepreneurs. The interaction also substantially increases
students' understanding of the value of staying in school.

of JA alumni indicate they have the confidence that they can compete
successfully in a business environment.
