Junior Achievement is excited to partner with Torusoft to offer Company Program Achievers access to a library of online courses covering topics ranging from mobile app development, to design and development for the web. By integrating the Digital Bridge Scholarship with Company Program, Company Program VPs of Digital Technology will be able to develop the skills they need to market their product or service with a competitive edge. This self-directed learning will be supported by a mentor or advisor to help guide them as they learn new content, and it is that link between mentor and student that JA feels provides the best opportunity accelerated learning.
Company Program is a student venture in entrepreneurship. The program improves employability, workforce readiness and awareness of new career opportunities. Students enhance their critical-thinking, presentation and leadership skills, while developing an appreciation of entrepreneurial qualities and a greater understanding of personal responsibility.
Junior Achievement of Nova Scotia provides hands-on experiential learning in the classroom and through extra-curricular activities. Programs focus on three educational pillars: financial literacy, workplace readiness, and entrepreneurship. JA recruits volunteers from the business community to collaborate on the delivery of programs, which exposes students to real world business perspectives and ideas.
