Experiential learning for important life skills
We work with schools to deliver experiential programs in the classroom to students in Grades 4-12, currently using an online delivery model. We also work directly with students through self-directed online learning and after school programming.
Our work is centered around three core pillars:
- Financial Literacy
Students develop real-world skills that they can apply to their lives immediately – such as budgeting, investing and aligning their financial choices with their goals.
- Work Readiness
Students learn how to translate their interests and skills into successful careers. They also develop practical job skills in such as interviewing, communications and critical thinking.
Students gain firsthand experience in running a business. They work with mentors from their local business communities to create strategies and manage companies.
Through partnerships with the education and business communities, JA programs create meaningful experiences that inspire students and provide them with the skills to achieve their potential.

The more I study and understand what I need to do in order to succeed, I believe that I can get ahead faster.
