Today's youth have very few opportunities to gain exposure to career fields. Yet when they get to be seniors in High School they are constantly asked by parents and administrators what do they want to be when they grow up. What are they going to major in college. My experience with thousands of high schoolers is the answer "I don't know". JA is one of the few organizations that actually help students get that exposure with programs such as Job Shadow, Entrepreneurship and JA Titan Programs. Also from grades 1 to 12 JA has the best educational programs of any non profit. I am not aware of any teacher, who once exposed to the JA programs, doesn't want to continue it. I have been watching the positive results for over 30 years.
