Junior achievement seeks volunteers

Junior Achievement of British Columbia is looking for volunteers in the Barriere and area business community

Junior Achievement (JA) is the world’s largest not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating young people about business.  With over 120 charters world wide, JA brings a global view of business to local communities. Since 1955, Junior Achievement of British Columbia (JABC) has partnered with educators, donors and volunteers to bring a real world experience into the classroom.  Their programs give students in grades 5 through 12 the confidence and skills they need to become the next generation of business and community leaders.

Since 1955, 3.7 million Canadian youth have participated in their business and entrepreneurial education programs. One of 17 charters across Canada, JABC relies wholly on the support and enthusiasm of dedicated financial supporters and volunteers who bring the real world experience into the classroom.

JABC is looking for volunteers in the Barriere and area business community to help delivery their free business education programs to area youth.
