JA Tampa Bay response to the COVID-19 virus

The State Department of Education has directed all school districts to close schools for two weeks due to concerns over the coronavirus. Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay is following this protocol, therefore our students, staff, and volunteers will postpone programming until Monday, March 30.

Here are the actions JA Tampa Bay is taking immediately:

The Bill Poe Family Junior Achievement Campus, the home of our two capstone facilities; JA BizTown and JA Finance Park will be for two weeks. Schools and volunteers will be notified and dates rescheduled.

All in-person and volunteer-driven Junior Achievement programming in schools or in after-school settings will be postponed for two weeks or delivered virtually.

Events, fundraisers, meetings, and other non-programmatic events over the next two weeks are canceled, delivered virtually, or rescheduled for a later date.

JA ACE will be closed for two weeks. Schools, volunteers, and speakers, to be notified or rescheduling.

If you are a volunteer, educator, parent, or business partner who has an event, meeting, or commitment to JA Tampa Bay, feel free to reach out and we will address your concerns with direct communication from our team.

We are still determined to prepare our future generations to own their economic success through our programs and will continue to develop innovative ways in which we can best serve our community. Your continued support of our students is greatly appreciated.
