Junior Achievement Rising Women

Meets on Wednesdays, 5pm-7pm from Feb 7, 2018– May 9, 2018 at BTS Software Solutions in Columbia

JA Rising Women is a unique after-school opportunity for female high school students living in Howard County who are interested in exploring their entrepreneurial potential.  Under the guidance of businesswomen in Howard County who serve as mentors, you and your JA Rising Women team will conceptualize and idea for a product or service, capitalize your venture, market your offerings, and reap the profits!  Whatever your interests or strengths, there is a place for you in the student company.  JA Rising Women requires a certain level of commitment, which you must be willing make.  The program is a great experience, but relies on the effort of the students involved to make it successful.

There is no cost associated with this program and it's a great experience to include in your college application or resume. In addition, participants who complete the program may be eligible for scholarship, internships and other unique opportunities. To be considered for the program, students must complete and submit an application packet by January 16, 2018.  For more details and application requests, please contact Hina Naseem at hnaseem@jamaryland.org or 410.313.6403.
