Together, JA and The Hartford are focused on serving K-12 students in Greater Hartford by delivering business and financial education in new and engaging ways that extend beyond the classroom. Our ongoing collaboration led to the creation of unique, innovative programs such as the JA Entrepreneurial Academy and the JA Be Entrepreneurial Symposium.

Congratulations The Hartford!
