Turning Today’s Students Into Tomorrow’s Leaders.

JA Waterloo Region is passionately committed to our mission of inspiring students and preparing them to succeed in a global economy.  We are part of the largest youth business education organization in Canada and in 2019 are celebrating 100 years worldwide.  Since 1970, JA Waterloo Region has worked in partnership with educators, volunteers and businesses to educate students about financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. 

In 2018/19 we delivered 203 programs to over 5,100 students in 51 schools with the help of 256 JA trained community volunteers.

Participating in JA programs transforms students and gives them the knowledge and confidence they need to succeed in school, business and life. Studies have shown that today’s most in-demand jobs didn’t exist ten years ago. JA prepares students to succeed in tomorrow’s careers, solve tomorrow’s challenges and launch businesses that create tomorrow’s jobs.
