Come See the Next Generation of CEOs and Meet JA’s Budding Entrepreneurs!

JA Fellows is an in-depth, highly intensive leadership and entrepreneurship program for high school students. Students gain real-world business experience by working in groups of 20-25, conceptualizing, capitalizing, and managing their own small businesses. Throughout this real-life entrepreneurship experience, students develop communication, financial management, problem-solving, collaboration and time management skills, just to name a few. Mentors work in teams of 4-6, coaching students through the process of starting and running a small business.

More than 200 business community leaders, school officials, teachers, parents and students gather at the Spark Tank Finale, where the final 10 high school companies present their business outcomes to a panel of business judges for a variety of prizes and awards, including JA Fellows Company of the Year. They also have a chance to advance to the JA National competition in Washington, D.C.!

Rob Ceravolo, CEO of Tropic Ocean Airways

A Fort Lauderdale native and U.S. Navy fighter pilot with 14 years of experience, Rob recognized a growing need for professionally run small to mid-sized airlines. He founded Tropic Ocean Airways, a commuter seaplane airline based in Florida with operations throughout Florida, the Bahamas, the Tri-State area, New England and the Caribbean. Using the leadership lessons learned from his experience as a Naval Officer, Rob grew Tropic Ocean from one four passenger seaplane and one employee to become the largest amphibious aircraft operator in the world, with a growing fleet of 15 aircraft and a team of over 100 personnel.
