DIGITAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION PROGRAM (DEEP)
While JA’s classroom-based delivery model has been very successful, the brick and mortar approach is a limiting factor in going to scale. As an organization, JA aspires to reach youth across the continent, whether in-school or out of school, in rural or urban areas, unemployed or in employment etc. Despite an annual reach of more than 300,000 youth, JA Africa is reaching less than 1% of African youth. To close this gap, JA Africa has built a digital learning platform with the potential to engage over one million students per year, while cutting the cost of delivery to less than one dollar per student per year.
JA Africa has launched JA DEEP, an online-based entrepreneurship curriculum, created specifically for a young African learner, that will be accessible both in and out of school. It is built on JA’s existing entrepreneurship programs: Company Program and ITS TYME, and teaches the same principles in an engaging and fun way.
