Burks Jewelers Academy, Inc.

The mission of Burks Jewelers Academy (BJA) is to educate and empower under-served and at risk youth ages 10-18 by providing alternative and innovative after school and summer entrepreneurial and gemology training.

Since 2014, Burks Jewelers Academy, Inc. (BJA) has been providing mentorship and training to youth in East Atlanta and surrounding areas for five years. BJA is dedicated to the vision of developing youth of the 21st Century into positive and engaged civic minded leaders with intrinsic desires and self-proclaimed responsibility to serve their community, thereby, creating a legacy of pride with a lineage of hope for future generations.

BJA was born through Douglas Burk’s dedication to youth and community, love of his craft, (gemology) and a desire to invest in the youth of today for a return not measured by the dollar bill.
