Using hands-on experiences, JA of GeorgiaÂ brings the real world to over 100,000 students each year, opening their minds to their full potential by bridging the business and education communities. The hallmark of JA is its unique use of local business and community volunteers who come into the K-12 classroom or host middle and high school students for JA Job Shadow, delivering JA programs in the areas of financial literacy, entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial thinking, and global workforce readiness. The dynamic interaction between students and volunteers with practical business experience promotes active learning and brings theory to life, while also allowing students to see a real-world model of someone who can demonstrate the value of business on a first-hand basis. These learning experiences establish the foundation on which young people can build the skills and attitudes necessary to succeed in a fast-paced world.
