With the support of educators and community volunteers, JA programs serve more than 1,300 students in North Manchester schools each academic year. These JA experiences are igniting the spark in young people to experience and realize the opportunities and realities of work in a 21st century global marketplace. JA of North Manchester relies on financial and volunteer support from businesses, organizations, and individuals to provide these opportunities and programming in Manchester Community Schools.
