JA Company Program
JA Company Program meets the after-school programming needs of a diverse group of students by providing engaging, academically challenging, and experiential learning sessions in economic education.
Start Up Program
The Start Up Program gives post-secondary students the opportunity to experience running their own company, giving them an insight into how their talents could be used to set up in business for themselves. The program was developed originally by Young Enterprise UK.
JA Innovation Camp High
At the Innovation Camp (sometimes also called Innovation Challenge, 24-hour Camp etc.) students gather in order to address a specific business challenge to come up with ideas which would solve the problem.
Company Program - Middle
In the Company Program - Middle, students put in practice what they learnt in a classroom situation by starting and running mini -enterprises within the school. They do active and responsible work through their own JA Student Company. This practical and encouraging program helps young people learn skills needed in school and working life.
Social Innovation Relay
The interactive web based learning programme is designed to encourage students to think like Social Innovators whilst developing a host of skills that will help them be innovative, entrepreneurial and socially responsible employees and business people in the future.
A global competition is a component of the program. It is organized in collaboration with NN Group that challenges secondary school students to develop an innovative business concept that addresses a social need. SIR provides young people with the hands-on skills and entrepreneurial expertise needed to start a successful career through a combination of virtual and face-to-face mentoring by experienced executives.
The participating teams are paired with e-mentors who are all business volunteers and who connect with the best 20 teams in each participating country, to help them develop concept papers that can translate into feasible business ideas.
