JA Company Program is a great learning experience for the students. We hope that the program gives the students skills to succeed in working life.

Since its launch in 1919, the Company Program has been teaching students how to take a business idea from concept to reality. They form their own real enterprise and discover first-hand how a company functions. They elect a board of directors from amongst their peers, raise share capital, and market and finance a product or service of their own choice. At the end of the program they present a report and accounts to their shareholders.

Your most important task as a parent is to be interested, listen, ask and encourage the students to succeed.

Thank you!
