Junior Achievement of British Columbia


Junior Achievement prepares and inspires youth to succeed in a global economy through business education programs focused on financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship, giving them the skills and confidence they need to become leaders of tomorrow.

1. Junior Achievement British Columbia is part of an international non-profit organization that delivers business-training programs to schools through volunteers from local business organizations.
2. JABC programs provide youth with the skills to make better financial decisions, start a company, develop a career plan and express their innovative spirit.
3. Over the last ten years, JABC has inspired and prepared thousands of B.C. youth to more fully contribute to our provincial economy. JABC’s reach has grown to serve more than 40,000 students annually in our province.

JA will be the partner of choice for businesses, educators, and policy-makers around the globe seeking to expand workforce and economic development. We will be revered for providing experiences that promote the skills, understanding, and perspectives students will need to succeed in a global economy and become productive, contributing members of society.

Inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.
