Ju­nior Achieve­ment Ja­maica – em­pow­er­ing the future

Jamaica Gleaner - - MESSAGE -

EM­POW­ER­ING YOUNG peo­ple to own their economic success is the vi­sion on which Ju­nior Achieve­ment (JA) Ja­maica was founded seven years ago.

To­day, the vi­sion has not changed but has be­come clearer as Ja­maica’s de­vel­op­ment is de­pen­dent on the ex­per­tise of our young peo­ple. With this, JA Ja­maica is ded­i­cated more than ever to giv­ing young peo­ple the knowl­edge and skills needed to own their economic success, plan for their fu­tures and con­trib­ute to the strength of their fam­i­lies, com­mu­ni­ties and economies.


Be­ing a non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, JA Ja­maica’s impact is largely cred­ited to sup­port­ive part­ner­ships with lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­di­vid­u­als. These col­lab­o­ra­tions have al­lowed for us to ef­fi­ciently ex­e­cute the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s vi­sion and stay­ing true to our long-term commitment.


Through the de­liv­ery of our cut­tingedge pro­grammes in en­trepreneur­ship, fi­nan­cial lit­er­acy and work­force readi­ness, JA Ja­maica has broad­ened the can­vas of pos­si­bil­i­ties for young peo­ple and en­riched their abil­i­ties to make the best of op­por­tu­ni­ties pre­sented to them. The pro­grammes taught are age-ap­pro­pri­ate, en­gag­ing pri­mary, sec­ondary, ter­tiary and out-of-school youth be­tween the ages of five to 24 years. Our pro­grammes are de­liv­ered by vol­un­teers and teach­ers com­mit­ted to the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s vi­sion. With this commitment and ded­i­ca­tion, our pro­grammes have reached over 60,000 youth across the is­land.
