As part of JABC’s Strategic Plan, Bright Future for all BC’s Youth, JABC’s 2019-20 goal was to deliver 15 programs in Indigenous communities. This goal was surpassed and, as of today, 23 JA programs have been delivered, reaching hundreds of Indigenous students across BC.
In addition to all the business and community leaders who volunteered their time to deliver a JA program, we would like to thank the following communities: Tkemlups te Secwepemc, Tsartlip First Nation, Urban Youth in Prince George, Cowichan Tribes, Witset First Nation, Heiltsuk First Nation, Urban Youth in Vancouver, and Urban Youth in Kamloops.
We would also like to express our gratitude to the following organizations who have given us the opportunity to promote our Indigenous Programs and engage with like minded people: UBC Ch’nook Indigenous Business Education, CPA BC, AFOA BC and the Community Futures Development Corporation of Central Interior First Nations (CFDC of CIFN).
JABC acknowledges the financial support provided for these programs from the Founders of JABC’s Indigenous Futures Circle: Deloitte LLP, Worth Allaye-Chan/Raymond James Ltd, Concert Properties, Leith Wheeler, Illahie Foundation, Jarislowky Fraser Partners Foundation, and Miller Thomson LLP.
