Junior Achievement South Western Ontario Logo

Our mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Our work bridges the gap between education and the real world by delivering specialized programs both in school and after school.

Our programs focus on financial health, work readiness and entrepreneurship – giving students in grades 4-12 the tools they need for their futures.

Working with corporate partners, volunteers and teachers, we create important connections to the workforce and prepare youth for the jobs of tomorrow. JA South Western Ontario supports students from Windsor-Essex to Grey-Bruce to Niagara.

JA programs are delivered by dedicated volunteers.

They bring their professional experiences into the classroom to help students connect program concepts with real-life situations. Volunteers use a mix of hands-on activities, discussions and digital learning to engage students and ensure they retain and use what they learn. With their help, students gain the knowledge and confidence they need to define their personal success and go after their dreams.
