“Every young person should have a practical entrepreneurial experience before leaving compulsory education.” – European Commission
JA Europe covers all levels of education ensuring progression in entrepreneurship education from primary school to higher education. The ‘JA Student Experience’ and ‘JA Education Pathway’ prescribe continuous development of learning outcomes for entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy to be acquired by students throughout their education.
Every young person can achieve success in today’s global economy. JA’s hands-on, experiential programmes pave the way. Our enterprising alumni are more employable, start more businesses, see longer and better business results and earn higher salaries than non-JA students.
Together providing students with skills for life, growing creativity, confidence, initiative, teamwork, resourcefulness, perseverance and responsibility.
Business volunteers impact students by bringing the real world into the classroom, mentoring them while they run a real business and acting as experts-partners-facilitators-judges in different activities.
JA programmes equip young people with the relevant skills to get a job or start a business.
