Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia - Preparing Nova Scotia Youth for the Future! October 21 2015
Earlier this month we made some buttons for the inspirational folks at Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia and we want to share the great work that they do with all of you!
JA Nova Scotia is a non-profit organization that works to motivate youth through educational programing, addressing the gaps in financial and business education in school curricula. We have all experienced the stress of the job hunt or been faced with making overwhelming post-graduate life choices. It is good to know that there are organizations out there helping prepare people for their next steps!
JA volunteers donate their time through a variety of programs that highlight their experience. We love that the community rallies behind youth education, youth programing and the success of young people in Nova Scotia and beyond!
Junior Achievement programs believe in arming young people with the knowledge and experience to succeed in the global economy. One program in particular, 'Company Program' inspires high school students to understand the role of business in our society by creating an enterprise of their own. Students collaborate with professional volunteer consultants to design, organize and operate a real business. These new entrepreneurs work within the structure of our Canadian economic system and realize the benefits it provides.
As we move through Small Business Week we want to thank JA Nova Scotia for preparing future entrepreneurs for the workplace! Learn more about Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia and to follow them on social media check out their Facebook and Twitter pages.
