OFFER A JA PROGRAM IN YOUR SCHOOL

JA Quebec's mission

JA Quebec trains businesspeople and executives to give free workshops and educational programs in Montreal area schools, for students between 10 and 18 years old.

These volunteers share their wealth of expertise and experience with students directly in your classroom, teaching them about financial literacy, work readiness or entrepreneurship.

Our programs include hands-on activities, discussions and mentorship. This approach ensures the students retain and apply what they have learned.

JA at your school

  • Give you a simple and effective way to help your students succeed, encouraging them to stay in school and fostering innovation
  • Provides students with a hands-on learning experience
  • Builds a bridge between education and the business world
  • Gives students the confidence and basic skills they’ll need the job market or start their own business
  • Develops kids’ entrepreneurship and leadership skills

Your school could be one of the prestigious ambassadors helping to create a skilled and dynamic new generation.

I am interested in learning more about your workshops and programs for my school/class.

Depending on how much time you have, we’ll help you find a program that’s right for you and aligned with the objectives of your educational program. We’ll try our best to meet your needs and match your preferences.
