We’re Preparing Indigenous Learners For the Future


JA Southern Alberta and the Future Aboriginal Business Leaders Symposium (FABLS) have partnered to develop financial literacy and entrepreneurship programs relevant to the context and learning styles of a greater percentage of Indigenous youth. The incorporation of cultural education methods helps to prepare Indigenous learners to finish high school, explore post-secondary opportunities, and acquire entrepreneurial skills to benefit their future.

JA seeks to create partnerships with schools, volunteers, business leaders, and donors, to provide opportunities for Indigenous students to shape their future and achieve success. Through the delivery of financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programming, JA expands the potential for young people to engage in their own economic development and contribute to the strength of their families, their communities, and Canada’s economy.

We need the support of volunteers now more than ever. Register to volunteer with Indigenous youth today!

The benefits of volunteering with JA are many, including: inspiring Indigenous youth to develop confidence, leadership and critical thinking abilities; developing your presentation, facilitation and public speaking skills; networking with members of the business and education communities.
