JA Finland helps to shape the future

26.10.2011 2011

Junior Achievement Finland is a Finnish branch of JA Worldwide. JA Finland is dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.

JA programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.

JA’s unique approach allows volunteers from the community to deliver our curriculum while sharing their experiences with students. Embodying volunteers transform the key concepts of our lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world. JA Finland’s educational programmes are mainly available in Finnish and Swedish language, but opportunities exist to include English speaking students and volunteers to our activities.
