A Message from our CEO

A Message from Junior Achievement CEO, Jennifer Burk

"There is no doubt that thousands of local families and children, especially students of color and low-income populators, face unjust barriers to a quality educator during a 'normal' time. . . . We owe it to our kids and community to provide our greatest attention and resources to address these inequalities."

JA BizTown

Grade: 5

JA BizTown combines in-class learning with a day-long visit to a simulated town. This popular learning experience allows elementary school students to operate banks, manage restaurants, write checks, and vote for mayor. Students are able to connect the dots between what they learn in school and the real world. (Grades 4-6)

JA JobSpark

JA JobSpark is a two-day, hands-on career expo impacting over 10,000 Indianapolis eighth graders. The JA JobSpark initiative includes in-class or remote curriculum and activities prior to and after attending the event. JA JobSpark is meant to “spark” an interest in students and get them excited for their future. Students will learn about skills needed for jobs that will be in demand when they graduate and will learn about the equipment that is used on those jobs daily. Students will have a better understanding of the courses they will need to take in high school, a track for post-secondary and a clear career pathway for what they find they are interested in.
