JA’s Be Entrepreneurial inspires students to imagine a business venture while still in school.
Through this interactive program, facilitated by volunteers in collaboration with the classroom teacher, students identify entrepreneurial concepts, including product, service, competitive advantage and target market. The program gives students an understanding of the importance role planning plays in starting a business. Be Entrepreneurial also helps students develop an awareness of resources that are available to entrepreneurs.
By the end of Be Entrepreneurial, students will have created their own business plan. This will inspire them to see new opportunities, innovate and start businesses.
Like other JA programs, Be Entrepreneurial is student-centred and skills-focused. Students who complete this program are eligible for JABC and JA Canada awards and scholarships and Discover your Pitch.
