Impact in Maryland

“I want to thank you for the opportunity to work at JA BizTown. I could use this experience for a lot of things when I get a job. I learned that if you work hard you can succeed in life. And when I’m old enough, I would like to volunteer there and help the younger kids." —JA BizTown student
