JA Company Program

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.
