Our Online Learning

JA British Columbia (JABC) is a non profit organization that delivers programs focusing on financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship to students across BC.

Yes! JA British Columbia is still here to offer financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship learning opportunities to students across BC.

With the immediate suspension of in-class instruction until further notice, we here at JABC are working hard to transition many of our in-class JA programs to an online learning environment for students, parents and BC educators to access outside of school. Through these self-directed online JA programs, students in Grades 4-12 can still gain the skills and education to help inspire, prepare and empower them for lifelong success.

Like our in-class programs, we are able to offer these online JA programs free of charge thanks to the generosity of our donors.
