Our Programs

Learn locally. Soar globally.

Our programs are designed to bring relevance, authenticity and application into everyday learning to energize students around financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. Through partnerships with the education and business communities, we bring academics to life by creating meaningful learning experiences. Together, we are transforming education to remove traditional barriers and give every student unparalleled connectivity to the business world, and fueling their passion for future success.


Why JA?

Dedicated volunteers from businesses deliver JA programs across central Ontario. They bring their professional experiences into the classroom to help students connect program concepts with real-life situations. Volunteers use a mix of hands-on activities, discussions and digital learning to engage students and ensure they retain and use what they learn. With their help, students gain the knowledge and confidence they need to define their personal success and go after their dreams.

Our impact happens in three stages: transformation, delivery, and achievement. First, we provide a transformational event that alters students’ ambitions and encourages them to do more with their lives. Next, we give them the skills and confidence they need to achieve great things. Finally, they use those skills to reach their highest potential.
