JA Rising Women

Introducing a new program that shows the world you mean business!


Are you inspired by entrepreneurs like Vera Wang, Oprah Winfrey, and Arianna Huffington? Now you can join their ranks and get a jump start on the path to running your own successful business. JA Rising Women, launching next fall, is a unique after-school opportunity for female high school students (grades 9-12) who are interested in exploring their entrepreneurial potential.

With the help of various businesswomen who serve as mentors, you and your JA Rising Women team will conceptualize an idea for a product or service, capitalize your venture, market your offerings, and reap the profits! Whatever your interests or strengths, there is a place for you in the student company. JA Rising Women requires a certain level of commitment, which you must be willing to make. This program is a great experience, but relies on the effort of the students involved to make it successful.
