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. 

Students learn how to start up and operate a business with their peers over an 18-week period. During this time, students 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.

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

  • Public speaking
  • Teamwork/collaboration
  • Financial literacy
  • Problem analysis
  • Creative problem solving
  • Responsibility and managerial skills
  • Business sense and more!

 If you would like to learn more, please contact us by email or call 519-352-0151

This program is free for our students thank you to our local sponsors who continue to support this program.  There is usually a small cost associated with launching and investing in your Company (usually max $20).  Students are a part of the team determining these corporate costs, and often make this investment back - and have potential to earn profits as well!
