We're Celebrating 50 Years!

 

Junior Achievement Waterloo Region is celebrating fifty years delivering on its mission to inspire youth in the community to succeed in a global economy. Working within the schools and in after-school programs – and most recently using interactive online programs - JA provides essential education in financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship to students in Grades 3-12.

 

Since forming on September 22nd, 1970, Junior Achievement has provided 50 years of programming and has grown regionally to bring their cost-free programs to students. Programming includes a variety of topics such as Our Business World for elementary students, Economics for Success for middle school students, and the famous Company Program for those in high school.

 

“We’re extremely proud of the work we do in the community, the difference it has made and will continue to make for our young people and their future,” said Murray Flanagan, Board Chair for JA Waterloo. “We’re inviting the entire region to celebrate with us, to ‘Experience JA’ and see first-hand the confidence students gain with the power of JA knowledge behind them.”

Help us reach our 50th Anniversary Goal!

 

Donations to the 50th Anniversary Campaign will be directed to JA programs in the Waterloo Region.

Reaching our goal means impacting the lives of almost 4,000 students, teaching them essential financial literacy, entrepreneurship and workplace readiness skills that stay with them throughout their lives.

Our youth need us now more than ever so let’s continue these relevant programs so kids can be inspired to learn, grow and achieve!
