|Comments||Our Mission |
JA inspires youth and prepares them to succeed in a global economy.
Presently Serving: Huron, Perth, Oxford, Middlesex, Elgin, Lambton, Kent, Essex, Bruce and Grey
JA South Western Ontario engages over 700 volunteers who mentor youth, providing them with hands-on experiential skills development in business, currently reaching more than 14,000 youth each year.
Participating in JA programs transforms students and gives them the knowledge and confidence they need to succeed in school, business and life. Studies have shown that today’s most in-demand jobs didn’t exist ten years ago. JA prepares students to succeed in tomorrow’s careers, solve tomorrow’s challenges and launch businesses that create tomorrow’s jobs.
