JAMS (Junior Achievement Means Success) is an innovative program

that prepares and inspires students to be successful in middle school and

beyond. In JAMS, students

work in teams to identify a need in the marketplace, create a

business idea, develop and present a business plan and ultimately compete

against other students in the Business Challenge Competition. The

overarching goal of JAMS is to show students how entrepreneurship can be a

pathway to economic and social empowerment.



Volunteers

serve as judges for the Business Challenge

Competition. Judges are asked to evaluate feasibility of

students’ solutions as well as provide constructive feedback. Our judges are an

integral component of our JA Means Success after school program. They help

students better understand how their work as students prepares them for the

workforce.
