JA Company Program in London & District

What's Your Plan for the Future?

Whether you have it all mapped out or really don't know what your future holds, JA Company Program is an excellent opportunity to set yourself apart from the competition, sharpen your skills, and develop that edge that employers are looking for. It's your chance to try your hand at business and entrepreneurship!

 

WHAT IS THE JA COMPANY PROGRAM?

The JA Company Program is an exciting, hands-on program. When you register you are placed with a group of your peers from various high schools. Along with a team of volunteer business advisors you will design, organize, and operate a real company. It’s your chance to step-up and try your hand at running your own business!

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Pick an idea…form a leadership team…produce your product or deliver your service…then make a profit and celebrate the achievement of a successful venture!

Capture all of your achievements and experiences on your personal resume.

DO I NEED TO HAVE AN IDEA?

If you do, that’s great! But you really don’t need an idea to take part. You’ll brainstorm ideas with your group when you have your first few meetings and your volunteer mentors will be there to help you develop a great idea.

 

OPPORTUNITY AWAITS

Each year, representatives from JA Company Program participate in the Next Generation Leaders Forum along with other youth business leaders from around the world!

Plus, there are over $40,000 in awards and scholarships to be won!
