JA Our Region


JA Our Region (redeveloped for 2016-2017 school year) explains the economic/business resources found in state and regional economies. This program teaches students about regional resources, supply chains, and solve problems by weighing risks and potential rewards. JA classroom volunteers show how resources are combined to create goods and services that individuals, businesses, and organizations provide to consumers.
