Experience builds success

This initiative connects high school youth aged 15-18* with career pathways and empowers them to become entrepreneurs and leaders in the skilled trades and technology sectors. Students build critical life skills and networks to empower them to succeed in these vital sectors. 

The program will run from October 2021 to March 2022. 

*youth must turn 15 by December 31, 2022. 

JA’s Building a Stronger Future initiative has three exciting elements: 

An interactive, online event that will include talks from industry experts, networking opportunities and an opportunity to explore these amazing pathways. There are two options to attend this free event:

October 5th and/or October 14th, 2021.


JA’s Company Program, through which they will create, develop and run their very own business with support from trades and tech industry professionals – giving students the skills they need to thrive as leaders and entrepreneurs in their key sectors. 

This event will run from November 2021 to March 2022.

A program wrap-up event that will highlight students’ Company Program successes and allow them to network with industry professionals as they consider their future career pathways. 

This event will take place in March 2022, with more information to follow.

I have an internship this summer and this helped me greatly. I feel more prepared than ever and I am excited to get started down this path.
