Junior Achievement Virtual Town Halls


The American economy depends on the entrepreneurial spirit and the success of small business. In light of the impact of COVID-19 on the economy, this unique interactive event will give teens across America the opportunity to ask questions to some of the country's most experienced entrepreneurs. In "Why Entrepreneurship Now? A Virtual Event for America's Teens" the panelists offer simple, straightforward strategies to empower participants to start the entrepreneurial journey in their youth and lay the foundation for a successful future.

JA and CNBC teamed up to present a Virtual Town Hall to answer teens' questions about the financial impact of COVID-19. Moderated by CNBC Senior Personal Finance Correspondent Sharon Epperson, this video features teens from across America asking a panel of experts about steps being taken to deal with the economic downturn from the pandemic. Panelists include Sheila Bair, Daymond John, Brad Klontz and Chicago's own Brian Coleman.
