This volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade program fosters work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential. JA students develop the skills they need to experience the realities and opportunities of work and entrepreneurship in the 21st-century global marketplace.

Meet the Masters is this year’s new art program provided by PFC. Students in all grades will be able to virtually engage in three enriching art lessons at a time convenient for them to learn about a few great masters of art like Marc Chagall, Joan Miro and Faith Ringgold. Although supplies will not be provided, the art lessons are structured for students to participate using art supplies commonly found in homes. Students will be encouraged to select and share one piece of their art to be included in the Virtual Art Fair later in the year.
Kolb Virtual Breakfast Book Club provides a unique opportunity to spark an interest in reading and foster a lifelong enjoyment in our students. The Book Club is open to students of all reading abilities in grades DK/K through 5th. Virtual Zoom grade level book discussions will be scheduled for the first Thursday of the month from 7:45 to 8:15. (Please note that the September and October meeting dates are dependent on when the books arrive and can be distributed to the students.)
Some benefits of being a Kolb Virtual BBC member include:
Age-appropriate books to read and keep!
Development of discussion skills in a friendly, social setting while learning from the insight of others.
Sharing the love of books with friends.
Book selections will be easier in the fall and ramping up to more complex selections in the spring. The focus will be on books that children can make a connection to and books that are fun to read. The goal is to share ideas, laugh and have fun! The cost is $75.00 per child and includes 9 books that the student keeps. The books will be ordered and distributed to the students so the students can read the book before the book discussion.
