The JA Company Program® is how Junior Achievement got its start in 1919. But this isn't your Grandpa's JA®. This immersive entrepreneurship experience is more than small business and lemonade stands. It's hands-on, in-depth, and inspiring for District, Maryland, and Virginia youth ready to find out what it really takes to be a 21st century entrepreneur. JA alumni are 143% more likely to start a business than the general population-- this experience is the launching point.
