Students learn with Junior Achievement

What kind of impact can possession of skills in entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy have on your life? Think about it. What are you going to be when you grow up? How much education will you need to make it possible? Where are you going to live? What are you going to drive? How much will all of it cost you? How will you afford it? These questions are part of all the serious things you need to ask yourself.

You have a role to play here – and JA Africa wants to help you nail down the part.

Young African students are entering a job market that is very different from their parents.’ Your parents’ generation understand paid jobs, employment, formal education, degrees, certificates on the wall, going to the office every morning , money in bank, printed photographs; one job for a lifetime. Your generation, by contrast, need to know the language of soft skills, entrepreneurship, informal learning, networks, working from home, virtual wealth, digital selfies, and a new job every other year. At JA Africa we help you prepare for that world.

We ask volunteers to come into your classroom and talk about important “real world” issues. The programs each volunteer uses are specifically designed to help you begin preparing for a successful future – and to understand that there is no limit to your potential.
