Tips to guardians and caregivers at home

Have you ever heard talk about JA, Pikkuyrittäjät, or the Company Program – and wondered what it’s all about? Do the young people in your household speak about voting, budgets, taxes, or perhaps they go on about innovations, elevator pitches, and business ideas? Do they keep busy also after school?

If the answer is yes, your child’s school is most likely implementing Junior Achievement Finland programs. That’s fantastic!

Ask, Encourage, Compliment

Here are some tips for you to support the eager learner.

Tip 1

Ask what’s going on. Familiarize yourself with the materials. If your child is participating in an entrepreneurship program, encourage them to develop the business idea. Remember, however, that it is their project. So, give your advice and steer them further without doing the actual work for them.

Tip 2

Offer to spread word to your connections of the company and their services.

Tip 3

In need, help the young entrepreneur with logistics and space arrangement.
