How do young people really feel about their financial futures?

How do you empower students to thrive in the world of work?

You connect them to experts to bring the world of work to life!

In the 2020-21 school year, over 1,140 students were inspired by volunteers from Zurich Canada who joined virtual classrooms nationwide to deliver JA's Economics for Success program.

Students learned key life skills - including critical thinking, financial management and goal setting - to empower them as they plan future career paths. In collaboration with the Z Zurich Foundation and the team at Zurich Canada, we'll be reaching even more students with a range of unique learning experiences next school year.
