Since 1961, JA of Sacramento has impacted over 350,000 young people through Common Core-aligned K-12 programs guided by the three pillars of financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and career readiness. JA programs enable students to make connections between what they learn in school and real-world applications. JA programs ignite the spark in young people to recognize the value of their education; be aware of and plan for their future; and realize the opportunities and realities of work and life in the 21st century through hands-on learning experiences. These early insights are essential building blocks for economic empowerment and self-sufficiency.
JA of Sacramento works with a diverse population of students from across the socio-economic spectrum. We deliver JA programs through implementation methods that address the specific needs of our community and schools. JA of Sacramento has innovatively transformed our traditional in-class and on-site programs into virtual classrooms and online learning platforms. We curate JA programs to best engage and inspire local youth.
