JAES is taking safety precautions and following all CDC guidelines for the upcoming event. “Keeping our players, volunteers, and staff safe is our top priority,” said JAES Marketing and Events Coordinator, Ivory Bandoh.
“We’re just really excited to finally get the community together on the course,” said Hayes. “With this being our 35th year, it is a testament to an amazing community that continues to support students across the Shore each year. We’re thankful.”

About Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore
Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore (JAES) is a non-profit organization educating youth, grades K-12, on financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship. We are dedicated to providing possibility and powering potential for students in 6 counties on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and the newly added Accomack County, on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. As the liaisons between business and education, we immerse ourselves in local business industries, identify the needs of the marketplace, and develop an innovative, needs-based curriculum that is brought to life, in the classroom, by community volunteers. We teach concepts that equip and inspire our students to understand and manage their finances, to live within their means, to identify fulfilling career pathways, to prepare for the “new norm” of work, and to explore entrepreneurial thinking. Our interactive, hands-on approach and our fun and engaging curriculum help students connect what they’re learning in school to real-life experiences. With the help of our community of Game Changers, our programs are provided to our schools at no cost to ensure all students, no matter where they find themselves in life, have access to JA’s vital programming. At JA, we believe in a world where every child’s story ends in success.
