JA Our City®
JA Our City is a series of five lessons. The average time for each lesson is 60 minutes. Materials are packaged in a self-contained kit that includes detailed activity plans for the volunteer and materials for students.
The goals and objective of the Program are:
- help students discover a variety of occupations;
- help students identify what types of businesses can be found in a typical city; develop the students' understanding of how workers apply their skills to their jobs;
- heighten the students' awareness of the contributions of businesses to a city.
All JA programs are designed to support the skills and competencies identified by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills. These programs also augment school-based, work-based, and connecting activities for communities with school-to-work initiatives.
