JA's elementary school programs are the foundation of its K-12 curricula. Six sequential themes, each with five hands-on activities, as well as an after-school and capstone experience, work to change students' lives by helping them understand business and economics.
Volunteer consultants from the local community lead students in engaging activities, serve as role models, and enrich the activities with their own life experiences. The materials for each theme are packaged in a kit containing detailed activity plans, informative workbooks for students, and additional materials to ensure a successful experience for students, volunteers, and teachers.
