Why Support JAI?

Join us in reaching out to more than 63,000 students nationwide by becoming one of our 180 supporting organisations. Each year 3,000 business volunteers deliver Junior Achievement enterprise and life skills programmes in more than 600 schools.

Findings from the European Commission’s 2015 report “Entrepreneurship Education: A road to success,” show the following results.

Impact on students:

  • Helps boost career ambitions
  • Leads to higher employability
  • Leads to improved entrepreneurial skills and attitudes
  • Leads to behavioural changes towards higher entrepreneurial intentions
  • Enhances intentions to start a business

According to a recent survey of our member organisations 98% believe JA programmes contribute to staff training and development. If you would like your staff to get involved in the local community while honing their presentation and soft skills, Junior Achievement is for you!

An annual contribution covers the cost of programme materials, training and support to your staff. At the end of the school year each volunteer receives a Certificate of Achievement and we present a feedback report on your organisation’s involvement. A mid year report is also provided and ongoing contact is maintained, keeping you up-to-date and ensuring staff achievements can be recognised as part of your internal communication processes.

Benefits to your organisation:

  • Excellent form of personal development for staff
  • Enhanced presentation and communication skills for business volunteers
  • Increased employee engagement and staff retention
  • Establish a profile of corporate responsibility in the local community
  • Helping develop work readiness among young people
  • Providing role models, encouraging "at risk" young people to stay in education
