JA Company Program

Written by allysonfletch on . Posted in In-Class Programs, JA High School Programs

Olympus High students experienced a sweet taste of entrepreneurship with the JA Company Program.

Students from Olympus High participated in Junior Achievement’s longest-running program, JA Company Program. The program is part of a blended-learning approach that offers groups of students the opportunity to understand the steps involved in launching their own businesses while learning the basics of entrepreneurship, financial literacy and business success.

Students from Olympus set up a business selling donuts to the Olympus High student body and made the decision to donate all $500 of the proceeds raised to Primary Children’s Medical Center. Check out this fun advertisement student’s created to market their donuts, broadcast in the school news.

A special thanks to Patrick Healy, Olympus High teacher, and Mike Ezler, volunteer, for helping this amazing group of students find success in their entrepreneurial efforts!

JA Company Program is Junior Achievement’s longest running program, beginning in 1919 with the founding of the organization. Today, nearly half a million students globally flex their entrepreneurial spirit each year with JA Company Program.



It Takes A Village

Tanner LLC presents JA-in-a-Day at Foxboro Elementary

They say it takes a village to raise a child and we know that to be true. This fall, Tanner LLC, an accounting firm in Salt Lake City, closed their business office for the day so the entire staff, 95 in total, could take part in volunteering at Foxoboro Elementary, in the Davis School District, to present JA-in-a-Day.

Junior Achievement could not reach over 85,000 students each year without the support of our business, foundation and individual sponsors. We also couldn’t do it without all the amazing individuals and organizations willing to give of their time to share JA’s three pillars with students throughout Utah: Career Readiness, Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship.  But here at JA, we believe that the most important thing these volunteers bring to classroom is not the JA curriculum, but rather their mentorship and caring. Volunteers may not always know the difference that  they have made in a child’s life, but we know that anytime a caring adult is giving their time and support to a child, they have made a immeasurable difference.

9am – 1pm (including lunch with the students!)

 What is JA-in-a-Day?  JA-in-a-Day provides the 5-6 in-class lessons in a one day format rather than being spread out over the course of several weeks.

This is an one of a kind opportunity to engage with the amazing students at Edison Elementary.
