BECOME AN ACHIEVER.
Since 1919, JA Company Program has taken students step-by-step through a process that works. Students partner with volunteer mentors and a group of 10-30 students to develop a business from start to finish. During their JA journey they will grow their leadership skills, identify business opportunities, set goals, produce a business plan, create a marketing strategy, launch a product, sell to customers and report to shareholders.
Any student across Central Ontario from Grades 9-12 can register for our free entrepreneurial after-school program. Please note, although there is no application process - spots in programs are first come, first serve so we encourage students to register early to get their preferred location choices. Programs begin at the end of October each year and run for 18 weeks.
"Junior Achievement has allowed me to find my career and given me opportunities to pursue it. Although you are an entrepreneur, you don’t necessarily have to be going into business. I myself will be doing Mechatronics engineering."
