JA Back-to-School Bowl 2016


JA Back-to-School Bowl is JA’s largest fundraiser. Each year, hundreds of participants from dozens of companies bowl to help JA provide financial literacy, entrepreneurship and career readiness programs to local students. The event is a fun mix of team building, networking and philanthropy with costume and trivia contests, door prizes and more. Each bowling team provides JA programming for an entire classroom of students for a semester. Two shifts are available for you to participate. Firms with 10 or more teams may schedule a private shift if desired.
