2017/2018 Regional Student Company Program Registration

 
 
The after-school Company Program is designed to help young people (grades 9-12) appreciate and better understand the role of business in our society. With the support and guidance of local business professionals high school students get the opportunity to build their own business enterprise. 
 
Further information about dates, locations and times are available at the bottom of this page. 
 
 
While operating their business, Achievers will have the opportunity to: 
  • Incorporate and capitalize by selling shares
  • Organize a Board of Directors and elect a management team
  • Produce and market a product or a service
  • Establish production and sales goals for their company, and monitor progress toward goals at regular company meetings
  • Maintain and analyze financial records
  • Compile an annual report for shareholders, pay a dividend and liquidate the business 
 
 
Through this after-school Company Program Junior Achievement of Waterloo Region seeks to:
  • Link students with mentor Advisors in the form of volunteers from our community who are knowledgeable about business operation and may be working local businesses or operating their own. 
  • Oversee the integrity of the ventures through robust policies 
  • Ensure the safety of products and services
  • Develop lasting relationships that bring students, mentors, and the business  community together for mutual benefit.
