Volunteering with JA’S Company Program
What is Junior Achievement?
Junior Achievement (JA) is a non-profit organization that is owned and operated by the business community. JA’s mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.
What is the Company Program?
The Company Program is an extracurricular activity for high school students in grades 9- 12. Students who participate in the Company Program have the opportunity to organize and operate an actual business enterprise. With the support and guidance of volunteer Advisors, the Company Program provides basic economic education for high school students. This is not a fictional or paper exercise – the students actually form a real company!
How can you participate?
Each Company Program requires a team of four volunteer advisors who assist the company with everything from capitalization and product selection to liquidation. The advisor’s role is not to make decisions for the students, but to provide guidance, share their business experiences, and to keep the students on track. To become involved all you need is a basic knowledge of business and a desire to work with teenagers. A police records check is required.
What are the benefits of volunteering with the Company Program for you?
Ask any Junior Achievement volunteer, and they will tell you: “You gain far more than you give.” Volunteer advisors with the Company Program have the chance to refresh their knowledge of business basics. The Company Program also gives advisors the personal satisfaction of helping young people clarify their personal goals and reach their potentials. Just as company members have fun, so do the Advisors!
What are the benefits of volunteering with the Company Program for business?
For the business community, Junior Achievement provides a vehicle through which the work ethic, free enterprise, and basic business understanding can be promoted. By investing in Junior Achievement, the business community recognizes and supports JA’s practical demonstration of the role of free enterprise in Canadian society
The program will start in Mid October and run one night a week for 18 weeks ending in March. JA will provide training, program materials and support during the program year. This is a much needed program to inspire entrepreneurial thinking in our youth.
