Uskalla Yrittää event
Uskalla Yrittää is the most significant youth entrepreneurship event in Finland and is organized by the Junior Achievement (JA) association. During inspiring studies, young people start a practise company with real money and receive feedback from working life professionals.
We inspire children and young people to find their own strengths – to learn by doing.

Teachers' and young people's experiences
It is all about enabling matters, not about doing them for the young people. It is great to see when a young person discovers the results of their work and realizes what they are capable of.
Vihti General Upper Secondary School
The year with Junior Achievement helped me determine the direction for my life. I realized that I was a true performer, helper of people and a designer of future. I learned how to sell things and accept feedback and how to network with others.
I have learned to overcome my performance anxiety and tell my own story in different ways, depending on the audience. I have always been nervous about performing in front of others, but it comes more naturally to me now.
The best thing about my experiences as an ambassador have been the interactions with others.
Come along, enthusiasm is guaranteed!
