Creating Tomorrow's Success Stories Today
Deep in the heart of every young person is the desire to learn and the hope to succeed. Sometimes these aspirations shine bright; other times they need to be found, dusted off, and sparked into action! Often, all these young people need are tools, guidance, and support. They need someone to show them the way and provide positive feedback along the journey. This is what we do at Junior Achievement; we are on a mission to inspire and prepare youth to succeed in a global economy.
Your commitment could vary from as little as 4 hours to a weekly visit of 3 hours for 18 weeks. It all depends on the program you choose. Get in a classroom with youth from grade 5 – 12 in locations convenient for you.
Our free programs meet your curriculum needs and align with Alberta Education’s Framework for Student Learning. We offer engaging, diverse, hands-on programming about business, financial literacy, and work readiness.
Our donors understand how important well-educated youth are to a sustainable future. Donor support provides students with the know-how to make responsible financial decisions, invest wisely, and become successful entrepreneurs.
