Inspiring Grade 3-6 Students to Become Canada’s Next Entrepreneurs

Students are often taught that success means “getting a good job” after graduation. Many are not aware that launching a business is a viable career option that can bring them amazing opportunities. 
In JA’s Our Business World program, elementary students explore how businesses are created and what makes them thrive.

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.

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.
