Spring Break Camp registration is now closed! If you’re an educator interested in offering this program in your classroom at a time of your own choosing, please contact Statewide Director of Programs & Evaluations Munira Sheriff.
Are you a high school student interested in learning about the stock market and personal stock investing? We have an opportunity for you!
We’re inviting you to take part in this no-cost, 2-day series of virtual workshops where you will learn about the stock market and trading from finance industry professionals, and gain access to a multi-week app simulation where you can apply you knowledge to the actual stock market — top performers of the simulation will receive prizes!
Camp time commitment: 2-4pm both days
Registration is now closed.
The workshop programming is based off of 3 sessions from the JA Take Stock In Your Future program with several additional self-guided resources for deeper learning.
After the workshops, students will get access to a brand new, game-based app providing users with a similar experience to real-world stock trading apps. Starting with $25,000 in virtual funds, students can compete with their classmates to build the largest portfolio. A leaderboard built into the app helps fuel this friendly competition! You will also have the option to meet with investment industry mentor groups for 4 weeks to analyze, strategize, and process how your simulation portfolio is performing to build long-term knowledge and habits around effectively researching market trends and engaging with the stock market.
