With the support and guidance of teachers and volunteer advisors from the local business community, Junior Achievement’s Company Program will give secondary school students the knowledge needed to organize and operate an actual business enterprise.

Students will learn what risks and rewards come with owning a business and how to build positive relationships with the community.

 While operating their business, participants will sell shares, produce and market a product or service and appoint a management team that best suits their company.

They will also learn to maintain and analyze financial records that will help them establish and monitor production and sales goals during the span of the program.

Company Program supports the curriculum objectives of a range of subjects, including mathematics, business, career studies, social studies, leadership and co-op,
and the Specialist High Skills Major – Business.
