"JA has helped me find my role in bringing development to my community. I now know what to do and value my time. JA has thought me entrepreneurship, financial discipline and the importance of saving."

"Entrepreneurship is not a substitute for unemployment. By creating a venture, you would have already created your own job. You are the only ones who can determine how far you can go in also creating jobs for other young people.”
