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 spoke with one of my students, Giselle, who was a teller at First Security Bank who said, ‘I love to be able to communicate with others and my friends. Working at the bank doesn’t even feel like I’m doing math. It’s fun!’ As a teacher that made me so happy to hear.”- Sean Bouw, Teacher
“It makes me happy to help customers and it’s fun working with the drink machine. I’m going to go home and tell my mom how busy Maverik was today. It was fun to work with people you don’t know and make new friends.” – Tyson, Student
“I’ve watched students evolve in their experience at JA City learning and thinking about what a CEO, CFO does and how it takes a team of people to make it work. It surprises me how some kids are natural savers and others burn through their money.”- Kim Haywood, Ally Volunteer
“What a refreshing experience, so much energy and excitement! A very unique opportunity where kids have a blast while they learn about real life.” – Kathy Hale, Ally Volunteer
