There is no cost to schools or like organizations that wish to use our programs, but some areas of Colorado are limited in availability. Our cost of implementation is approximately $500 per class, but this cost is covered by grants, sponsorships, special events and individual donations.

Explanation of how we are able to provide differentiated services to meet the individual needs of schools and districts.

We have a menu of program offerings which schools and districts may choose from, with programming for K through 12th grade. We offer two formats: our traditional, weekly program or JA in a Day event at the school. We also have JA Finance Park for middle and high school, both as a live field trip or available in virtual form online, in addition to several special high school programs.

How will we evaluate our services and support to schools and districts and its effectiveness in school/ district/ student achievement?
