JA Nova Scotia is Transforming Lives
A Look Ahead
In 2016-2017, and for the first time in our history, we raised over $1M in support of youth in the province. Last year, 13,333 students, ages 3-25, committed 75,057 hours to learning about financial literacy, workplace readiness and entrepreneurship. Province-wide, JA delivered 601 JA programs and engaged 747 volunteers from the business community who committed 11,481 hours to mentoring youth.
In looking ahead, our Legacy Project officially launches this year, which involves the new home of our laureate portraits and the Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame.
We will also be introducing an incredible new program called World of Choices. World of Choices is an innovative and interactive career forum for students, which fuses mentorship with career exploration.
At JA, our priority is youth and their future. Our focus will continue to include labour attachment strategies, vocational training, workforce capacity building and poverty prevention and alleviation. We believe that every young person deserves a bright and promising future. With your help, we are transforming lives!
