Community engagement reflects the special projects that JA develops with partners across Washington state. Have a proposal? Contact Statewide Program Director Leah Katzer.

Department of Social & Health Services — Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Partnership

JA of Washington has partnered with the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services to provide workplace readiness training and work-based learning programs for students with disabilities, aged 14-21. Working specifically with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, JA will be making an impact on a student population they did not previously have access to and at a critical time when these students will be needing more assistance with preparing for and succeeding in a volatile job marketplace.

Emergency Food Network

Our partnership with Emergency Food Network allows for JA programs to be distributed to families in need. By including access to JA programs at a food pick-up site, each family has the option to take home programs and lessons that teach about financial health and prepare young people for a stronger future.

National University

The National University Junior Achievement (JA) Education Partnership is designed to help JA employees, teachers, and volunteers advance their educational and career goals. Through this scholarship, the above JA constituents are eligible for a 25% tuition reduction for over 75 programs.
