Over a four-month period, JA Company Program teaches high school students how to organize and operate a real business. Volunteers from the local business community work with students to launch and run a small enterprise. This gives students the real-world skills and experience that they need to fulfill their potential. 

Sur une période de quatre mois, le programme Entreprises Étudiantes de JA apprend aux élèves à organiser et à gérer une véritable entreprise. Des bénévoles issus du monde des affaires local travaillent avec les élèves pour lancer et gérer une petite entreprise. Les élèves acquièrent ainsi les compétences et l’expérience pratique dont ils ont besoin pour réaliser leur potentiel. 

La célébration de l’entreprise JA 2024 aura lieu en juin 2024.
The 2024 JA Company Celebration will take place in June 2024.

“Unlike at school, where you are provided with materials, taught a lesson, and given time to study; JA puts you in situations that make you think and act on your feet. You are tested first, and then you learn from your failures or your successes.”

~ Khadeer, JA Company participant and award winner
