Prepared. Emboldened. Equipped. Inspired. 


Here at JA®, we have a lot of different ways we make sure District, Maryland, and Virginia youth are ready for whatever may come their way in the future. Maybe through one of our proven, experiential in-classroom programs, or maybe a hands-on, eye-opening JA Job Shadow™ experience. But regardless of the method, the goal of all of our work is to make sure we are creating Generation Ready.

Ready to solve problems creatively, manage risk effectively, and welcome opportunity. 

Ready to run businesses, lead nations, make discoveries, and change our world.

We all have a vested interest in ensuring that our young people are more prepared than ever to take on the challenges of an increasingly complex world with fervor and confidence. By investing in our programs you can rest assured knowing you have done your part to complete this preparation.

Because of your generous contributions and time, we’re helping more and more young people be better prepared for success than any generation in history. We’re emboldening them to take on their destiny with passion and confidence. And most of all, we’re inspiring them to dream big, and imagine what's possible. We say it all the time, but it remains true: We can’t do what we do without you.

When you’re ready, we’re ready.

Let’s work together to make sure they’re ready.
