Why Invest in JA?

A clear link exists between the challenges faced by business and the unique solution JA provides

JA provides an advanced skill set, including critical thinking, effective teamwork and leadership that enable young people to grow, thrive and produce in many critical areas of their lives. In fact, the challenges we hear about today are the very issues JA addresses: workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy.

In The Classroom With JA Volunteers

Volunteers go into hundreds of classrooms every year to deliver JA programs and support the futures of southern Alberta youth. We have both independent volunteers and corporate teams who donate their time and expertise. With so many classrooms to fill and a growing demand, we couldn’t be more thankful that you came out. Thanks to you, we’re improving the lives of these youth and making a dramatic impact on future sustainability.

Special thanks to our photographers who kindly donate their time and talent to help us get these shots, and the corporations who send in their own and share their photos so we can bring these to you.
