Company Program Sponsor

In Company Program, students discover the risks and rewards of starting a business; solve actual business challenges; explore business ethics; and foster positive relationships with team members and external stakeholders.

As a JA Company Program mentor, your staff team will be able to directly mentor and support the learning of the students on a weekly basis from October to March. Each week, JA will provide lessons and guided activities to be led by 3-4 volunteer advisor staff members. Students meet with advisors once per week for 3 hours for 18 weeks (at a mutually agreed upon time and day at your office). 

Company Program takes students through the entire business cycle from start-up to liquidation.  Each student assumes a role within the company, which means that all employees at your company will have a role to play as a mentor and guide. Students will not only develop deep insight into business, but direct access to the real world perspectives of business leaders, appreciation of your organizational culture, and the creativity and dedication required to be successful in today’s marketplace. Achievers will see how real business challenges are solved and apply those insights to their own venture.
