JA Bowl-a-Thon

Junior Achievement’s Annual Bowl-a-Thon event is JA’s biggest fundraising event of the year. Nearly 3,000 bowlers in communities across Oregon & SW Washington rally their employees to form five-person teams and come out to support JA! Each bowler raises pledges from friends, family members and colleagues in support of a great cause — you don’t even have to be a great bowler to participate!

JA Stock Market Challenge

This Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge brings the excitement of Wall Street to the Rose City! High School students participate in two volunteer-led classroom exercises that help them grasp the concepts they need to compete in the Stock Market Challenge. The event gives them a chance to practice those skills in a fun and dynamic environment
