Middle School Programs
Middle school students are at a crossroads. Those who don’t see the connection between school and their future may give up – deciding that dropping out as soon as possible is their best option. In six lessons, JA’s in-school middle school programs provide not only valuable concepts that will help students be successful in the school and the workplace, but volunteers to encourage students to stay in school – and to understand how critical school success is to success in every aspect of their adult lives. JA Finance Park, a capstone program for middle school students, is a high-impact, experiential learning lab that allows students to be adults for a day – making a living and managing a budget.
Each middle school program contains six lessons. Lessons are generally taught once a week for six weeks – 45 minutes to an hour for each lesson.
