What is Play 4 JA?

Play 4 JA is different than anything we've ever done here at Junior Achievement of Greater Washington. This fun and easy program includes our signature event, JA Bowl-a-Thon, along with other activities like Top Golf, Escape Room, or Happy Hour.

With Play 4 JA, you can choose alternative methods of play to ensure maximum employee excitement, engagement and participation for the benefit of JA kids. The flexibility and creativity afforded with this new format is sure to enhance and maximize existing partnerships while presenting new forums, venues and opportunities for employee engagement.

How does Play 4 JA work?

Your company will elect one or two coordinators. Company coordinators recruit team captains. Next steps? Start raising money for JA students. Each participant will collect pledges online. The goal for each individual is to sponsor 2 or more students by raising at least $100 prior to their event date.

JA will work with the coordinator to select a date, time and location, and to ensure you have everything you need for a successful and fun event. Companies will cover the cost of the event.
