Many Canadian youth leave their communities, or the country, to look for work because they don’t realize the opportunities they have to succeed at home.
Our Community – Needs, Jobs, Tools gives elementary school students the building blocks for a successful career – right here at home! The program shows students how business shapes our lives and strengthens society.
How We Achieve
The annual impact on Canada’s economy, directly attributed to the work of JA, is $105 million.*

During this interactive classroom program students will:
Discuss the common types of jobs and workplaces
Describe ways people earn, spend, share and invest money
Explain the value of tools in helping people get their jobs done
Identify tools used in different jobs and describe how they are used
By the end of this program, students will learn about their own potential and how they can contribute to Canada’s prosperity. This prepares students for careers in business and inspires them to make a positive impact in their communities.
