An Unforgettable Lesson in Business
Defying difficult personal odds, a JA team from Parksville beat some of the top schools in the province to be crowned “Titans of Industry.” Kyle, Ryan and Antonio, students at the PASS-Woodwinds Alternate School, participated in the interactive JABC Business Challenge Online. The competition is an online simulation that teaches students to manage a company in a virtual marketplace, responding to ever-changing economic conditions.
Leading their company to victory, the three students were in competition for sales and market share with over 50 other teams using the business concepts and strategies they acquired through the JA TITAN program. This opportunity inspired these young men to take the lessons they have learned and use them to pursue their dreams.
