Beyond School

The Beyond School format provides students with opportunities to have rich experiences outside of school walls. Whether it is a job-shadow program at a local corporation or a conference at a university, students not only gain important economic knowledge, but also get to experience the world of work and the world of higher education.

The Beyond School programs include job shadows for high school students at companies such as ING in Windsor, Comcast in Berlin, AT&T in New Haven and NBC Connecticut in West Hartford. JA also offers conferences for fifth graders at Aetna, for middle-grades students at The Hartford and Gateway Community College, and for high school students at Central Connecticut State University and The University of Connecticut School of Business.
