Inspiring Grade 3-6 Students to Become Canada’s Next Entrepreneurs
Preparing Grade 3-6 Students for Their Financial Futures
The earlier students learn how to manage money, the greater their chances of lifelong financial success.
JA has designed the More than Money program to address this challenge. With the assistance of volunteers from the local business community, the program teaches elementary students about earning, spending, sharing and saving money.
Learn all about the Possibilities of Business
Entrepreneurs drive the Canadian economy, strengthen communities and create jobs. However, children are often not encouraged to become entrepreneurs.
In JA’s newly updated A Business of My Own Online program, you'll put on your entrepreneurial hat and run your own retail business. You'll learn how to start a business, produce and promote your products, track your finances and manage a team.
Empowering Grade 6-9 Students to Make Smart, Lifelong Financial Choices
Canadian youth are growing up in a time in which spending is easier than ever and debt is a way of life. This problem is exacerbated by hectic family schedules, which leave parents with little time to teach their children about money management.
How can we prepare today’s youth to avoid personal debt?
Through the newly updated Dollars With Sense program, Grade 6-9 students get the vital tools they need to make smart financial decisions, live debt-free and become savvy investors. Students learn personal money management skills that they can apply to their lives ... beginning now.
Inspiring Grade 6-10 Students to Stay in School and Plan for Success
For many students, the transition from high school to post-secondary education or employment can be overwhelming. Students often feel that their high-school experiences haven’t adequately prepared them to meet the demands of university, a career, or living on their own.
In Economics for Success, grade 6-10 students take a closer look at the advantages of staying in school, as well as learn what’s needed to succeed in today’s workforce. Volunteers from the local business community partner with classroom teachers to help students see the link between education and achieving their goals.
Empowering grade 9-12 students with financial literacy
Canadian youth are growing up in a time in which spending is easier than ever and debt is a way of life.
This problem is exacerbated by hectic family schedules, which leave parents with little time to teach their children about money management. Limited resources in schools mean that they are also not able to teach students critical financial skills that will keep them out of debt and help them succeed in life.
Personal Finance is JA’s new financial literacy program for Grade 9-12 students. The program teaches students personal money management skills including the key elements of personal finance such as spending wisely, budgeting, saving, investing and using credit.
