The earlier youth prepare for business, the better their chances of success.
JA’s Success Skills is an exciting program that helps students develop the communication and personal skills needed to achieve career and lifelong learning success. In this interactive program, volunteers from the local business community work with classroom teachers to prepare students for the working world. Students learn communication, collaboration and problem-solving skills that can help them throughout their careers.
