You’re never too young to start thinking about becoming an entrepreneur. But how can youth who want to set out on their own get the skills they need to succeed?
JA British Columbia (JABC) empowers youth across the province to build knowledge about entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness. The Trust has partnered with JABC to expand their business education programming in the Basin. These programs are delivered in local schools by enthusiastic volunteers from the business community, and focus on subjects like creating a business plan, understanding money management and making long-term career choices.
By helping youth build skills like these, this partnership brings the Trust one step closer to achieving its goals of supporting youth entrepreneurship and a broader entrepreneurial culture — and it brings youth one step closer to entering the business world on their own.
