JA Africa featured in Delta Air Lines in-flight magazine

JA Africa’s partnership with Delta Air Lines in Nigeria was featured in the March edition of Delta Air Lines in-flight magazine, Sky. In June 2017, Delta strengthened its commitment to Africa by expanding its community service efforts to include partnerships with Junior Achievement Africa in Nigeria and Senegal.

JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT through its partnership with Junior Achievement—the nation’s largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need for economic and academic success and planning for their futures—Delta donates its time and resources
to 28 JA chapters in the United States, Latin America, Europe, South America, Africa and the Caribbean. Delta volunteers offer job shadows and work with students through simulated real-world exercises.

In October, Delta hosted its first InnovatiCamp in partnership with JA Africa. More than 180 students from 25 school regions were able
to design apps and other innovative products and services to help Delta solve some of the business challenges it faces in Nigeria. Through this process, the students learned new skills, including problem-solving, communication, team building and troubleshooting.

This month, Delta is hosting another Innovation Camp in Senegal, and in the coming months there will be job shadow programs in Salt Lake City, New York, London and more.

“Delta is proud to partner with Junior Achievement chapters across four continents, sparking students’ interest in aviation and business careers and teaching financial literacy, entrepreneurship and business readiness to more than 810,000 students annually,” says Tad Hutcheson, Delta’s managing director of community engagement. “What these students learn through JA today will prepare them for the careers of tomorrow.” juniorachievement.org
