Helping Cherokee students achieve their dreams

Junior Achievement Programs
JA Inspire is more than a career fair, it brings together the business community and local schools and is designed to help launch middle school students into their futures: high school, college, careers and beyond.
The program is both classroom and event-based, and consists of three segments:
- in-class sessions presented by the classroom teacher
- the hands-on JA Inspire expo
- an in-class debrief
During the JA Inspire expo, students participate in hands-on activities, often using equipment or tools used on a job. The multi-hour experience is configurable to align with local industry and career opportunities.
JA Investor Challenge is an exciting and educational hands-on introduction to the stock market. High school students form teams and are given the chance to experience the excitement of buying and selling stock shares on a live trading floor.
The JA Investor Challenge provides a unique opportunity for students to learn how to work as a team, make decisions under pressure and take calculated risks.
