Did JA make a difference in your life?
Is there a story you want to share about how a JA mentor helped positively influence your life or career?
Do you want to re-connect with JA and others who had “the JA experience?”

JA Alumni are a select group of leaders who have experienced our programs as students. You may have run your own student business as a member of the JA Company Program®, experienced what it was like to make financial decisions at JA Finance Park Virtual®, or participated in any one of JA’s other K-12 learning experiences.

Regardless of which JA Learning Experience you participated in, we invite you to join the JA USA® Alumni Society. Our goal is to bring together JA Alumni from all over the country, re-engage with you and share periodic updates about what JA is doing now.
