JA Central Ontario provides school-board-approved, curriculum-based financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship programs.

We offer in-class and digital programs that introduce students in grades 3 – 12 to three key life skills: financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. These programs are supported by corporate partners who enhance delivery through expert video content - sharing real-life experiences, advice, stories and inspiration.

Our programs are designed to bring relevance, authenticity and application into everyday learning. 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.

All programs funded by private and corporate donations that allow us to provide JA programs in the classroom at no charge.

JA’s portfolio of practical, student-centered programming continues to be an integral part of my practice. Thank you to everyone at JA who work so diligently to support our students!
