Participants say it best:
JA isn’t simply a program that teaches about business, but most importantly, it teaches us about who we are.” Martin L. – Achiever
Junior Achievement challenges individuals to step into the classroom and talk about important “real world” issues with students. As a JA volunteer, you inspire and educate young Canadians to experience free enterprise, understand business and economics, and develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills. The programs are specifically designed to help youth prepare for a successful future–and understand there are no limits to their potential.
Junior Achievement’s Company Program is the ultimate training ground for young entrepreneurs from grades 9 to 12. Working with other students, they learn about running a business – from forming a company, to developing marketing campaigns, to deciding how to distribute dividends – they have the opportunity to try it all!
Benefits form an active role in any business strategy, looking out for the welfare of the employees who serve the interest of the corporation,”
says Janine Fraser, Interim President and CEO.
In this, JA lives what they preach having established their benefit program decades ago and constantly ensuring it keeps pace with modern business practices.
As a non-profit organization, JA’s comprehensive Great West Life benefit package has played an integral role in the cultivation of the organization’s employee satisfaction and retention strategy. Furthermore, being able to rely on the consistent and efficient coordination by MP Benefits has allowed the Junior Achievement team to focus on its mission to inspire and prepare youth to succeed in a global economy.”
