JA Rising Women introduces students to the key elements involved in organizing and operating a business, while empowering them to solve problems and address local needs through the entrepreneurial spirit. The program focuses on building 21st century skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, decision making, and much more. It is a unique after-school opportunity for high school girls interested in exploring their entrepreneurial potential. Through the program, students conceptualize an idea for a product or service, capitalize the venture, market their offerings, generate a profit, and reap the rewards.
The programs runs for 16 weeks, with breaks for holidays, school closures and follows the HCPSS school calendar. Virtual Program
