JA Company Program–Pop-Up teaches students how to plan, launch, and operate their own business venture within a structured, guided experience. Throughout the start-up process, students collaborate, make crucial business decisions, practice communication skills, and develop entrepreneurial knowledge and skills within a streamlined, teacher-led experience. All profits generated benefit the school, a designated community organization, or other school-approved recipient.

Through the process of establishing a pop-up venture, students will be able to:

-- Set personal goals through the lens of an entrepreneurial mindset.
-- Establish the elements of a successful business.
-- Define different roles and responsibilities necessary to launch a pop-up.
-- Understand the Four P’s of Marketing (product, price, place, and promotion).
-- Launch, operate, and close out a pop-up business.
