    Message from the MD

    If South Africa is to make a meaningful dent in the employment deficit, especially for young people, the answer lies in the small business sector and entrepreneurship.

    Nurturing entrepreneurial thinking at an early age and preparing the 21st century learner for the world of work is at the heart of what we do at Junior Achievement. This is where innovation, creativity and solutions to some of our most pressing societal challenges come from.

    We believe that our mission to develop self-sufficient and socially responsible future leaders aligns perfectly with the National Development Plan

     (NDP) vision to create 11 million new jobs by 2030 by investing in programmes that support disadvantaged young people to achieve financial independence and security.
