Our Approach

Embodying the heart of JA, hundreds of volunteers from Austin, Round Rock, Westlake, Georgetown, Leander, Pflugerville, Elgin, Killeen and many surrounding communities transform the key concepts of our lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world. JA equips young people with tools to navigate our rapidly changing workforce so that they may live productive, fulfilling lives regardless of their circumstances. We curate project-based learning experiences for young people in schools,  after-school programs and in partnership with local organizations such as Breakthrough Austin, the African American Youth Harvest Foundation and Boys and Girls Club of Austin.
