JA University

Many students are in need of guidance to help them navigate the path to higher education and training. JA University is a locally developed program to help demystify the process for NYC and Long Island middle and high school students. Volunteers work with students in small groups through a 2.5-hour workshop on college exploration, budgeting and decision-making, and building a personalized college action plan.

Volunteers supplement this program with their own college experiences and insights, and inspire students to continue their own education. Students walk away with practical advice they can apply immediately.

JA University can be delivered in school, at a company or on a college campus.
