"What I thought was really neat was that the students got a “heads up” on what life was going to be like. They need to try and try to get where they want to go."

Sanjana | JA BizTown Student

"JA has been a wonderful experience for me ever since I was in the 3rd grade. The activities that we participate in are always engaging and challenging. If you're a kid you don't normally think of fun when you think of money and budgets, but JA makes it a fun, stress-free and real world experience."

Alexis | JA Student

"The (JA Job Shadow) experience was everything we expected and more. We were given insight into creative and design careers in the agency as team members explained their duties and talked about what life is like in the advertising world today."

Malik | JA Job Shadow Student

"I realized that it is hard being an adult. JA Finance Park has taught me how to use my money, save money, budget, taxes and other things. I now understand when my parents say that to spend one dollar, you have to earn a dollar thirty because of taxes."

Kairuv | JA Finance Park Student
