Thanks to our partners and the work of some 500 volunteer mentors, JA Quebec plays a major role in preparing Quebec’s future leaders. We provide hands-on training on how to start job-creating businesses, and we foster entrepreneurial values that strengthen workplaces. Our programs revolve around four pillars: entrepreneurship, financial literacy, work readiness, and academic success.

For 1962, our actions have inspired and educated young people on the value of business and helped them to better understand business and the economy, while allowing them to develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills.
