MAKING AN IMPACT
JA inspires youth to start a business, make better financial decisions and chart a career path. JA engages community volunteers from local businesses and post-secondary institutions to provide hands-on learning opportunities for Grade 5-12 students.
JA programs are delivered free of charge to local area schools with the support of committed JA volunteers and our community partners and sponsors. ONFE works with educators and school boards to identify and ensure that programs are made available to those in most need of innovative programs.
