Company Program



JA South Western Ontario is proud to offer Company Program to high school students in the communities of Chatham-Kent, Sarnia Lambton, and Windsor-Essex. 

Through participation in this program, students learn many skills such as:

  • Public speaking

  • Financial literacy
  • Problem analysis
  • Creative problem solving
  • Responsibility and managerial skills
  • Business sense and more!

Students learn how to start up and operate a business with their peers over an 18-week period. During this time, students will select a product/service to manufacture/offer in their local community, elect a management team, and create a successful business in a safe, encouraging environment. If you would like to learn more about this opportunity, please contact us by email or call 519-352-0151.
