Ally Financial in JA City

Written by allysonfletch on . Posted in Community, Featured Partner, JA City

Thanks to our partnership with Ally Financial, we are bringing the JA experience to more students in our community!

Ally sponsored students to attend JA City where they were adults-for-the-day and had the opportunity to see what it takes to interview, run a business and work with others in the JA City community.  Thanks Ally for all your support of JA and Utah’s students!

“I like JA BizTown. I wanted to be the meter reader, but they made me be the CFO!” – Casy, Student

“I liked delivering bills because I liked going into all the businesses; that was the best part of JA. I learned to be patient with everything and now I feel prepared to write checks.” – Braeleigh, Student

“We had a lot of kids step in and help each other. JA City has done a great job with constant improvements.” – Jonessa Goates, Ally Volunteer

I was just sitting at Maverick and two students came by. One student was headed to break and the other was headed back to work. The student heading to break patted the other one on the back and said, “You need to get back to work, you’ve got a lot of bills to pay!” I had to laugh. – Becky Anderson, Teacher
