JA Fellows

JA Fellows

JA Fellows is the pinnacle business and leadership experience for 9th-12th grade students.

As a JA Fellow, students develop the skills and knowledge that will set them apart when competing for scholarships, college acceptance, and eventually a spot in the global marketplace.

Through this in-depth, leadership and entrepreneurship program, students gain real-world business experience by working in teams of 15-20 to conceptualize, capitalize and manage their own small business. Mentored by top professional leaders, students gain insight around concepts, such as market research, leadership and financial management. JA Fellows participate in events such as JA Fellows Ready, Set, Ignite; Spark Tank and JA Fellows Finale.

On Wednesday, June 21, in Washington, D.C., the teen entrepreneurs of Alpha Necessities representing JA of South Florida (Fort Lauderdale Area) were selected from among 15 JA student companies as the JA Company of the Year, powered by The Hartford, at Junior Achievement's (JA) 2017 National Student Leadership Summit (NSLS).


Get Involved

Students

You know how people always say "you can be whatever you want to be." Well, that's true! The only catch is you need the dedication and skills to get there. If you provide the dedication, JA will help you develop the skills, as well as confidence, knowledge and access into the world of business.

JA Fellows offers a unique opportunity for self-motivated high school students to gain in-depth, hands-on experience that will enable you to become the next generation of leaders who are equipped to handle the highly-competitive global marketplace.

This year's program is unique in the sense that we are transitioning to a new blended learning model, which allows JA Fellows students to be engaged with interactive content, and better prepared for the digital direction our nation is going.

We welcome interested 9th through 12th grade students to consider joining our 2017-18 program which will begin September 2017. For further details please contact martha@jasouthflorida.org.
