What is the JA Company Program?
A chance for high school students (Grades 9 - 12) to gain knowledge on how to run a business, by creating a company of their own! They are placed in a group with 10-16 other students from across the city, elect an executive team, develop a product and take it to the market with the help of business advisors!
Do you want to be a Doctor? Lawyer? Engineer? Teacher? Business Person? You will gain skills that can be used in any career! This program is open to anyone, not only students interested in business!
What's in it for you?
When is it?
The JA Company Program is an after school program that starts during the first week of February and runs until June. You can select which night you want to come on (Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) and that will be your night for the rest of the program. It goes from 6PM to 9PM each night.
Where is it?
Students in the Edmonton Area after school program will have their company headquarters at the JA Centre downtown!
#200 World Trade Centre Edmonton
9990 Jasper Avenue

Is there a cost?
There is no cost! However, you will be asked to make an investment of $10 to purchase a share in your company (this creates your company's capital- which is business lingo for start-up money!)
This money will be returned to you at the end of the program by cheque with your company's dividends and also any salaries/wages if accrued. (Yes, that's right! You get paid by your company for being there!)
Can I invite my friends?
Of course! And we have a contest just for that!
The JA Referral Contest is the way achievers can bring their friends, recruit other students and win a prize while they're at it!
