Junior Achievement (JA) Finland offers schools, educational institutions and municipalities services and learning modules that support working life, economic and entrepreneurial skills.
Junior Achievement Finland & Economy and youth TAT have combined their operations – We are the new JA Finland
An active and functional society is created when everyone is taken on board at an early stage. Understanding of working life, the economy and entrepreneurship plays a key role in this.
We work for the future of young people
The new JA Finland offers schools, educational institutions and municipalities services and learning modules that support working life, economic and entrepreneurial skills. Our service path covers learning modules for all educational levels.
Our goal is to ensure that every child and young person, regardless of their background, gets a chance to learn skills that are important for their future. We strengthen the readiness of children and young people to meet the needs of changing working life, to manage their daily lives and to identify their own strengths.
Together with our wide and international partner community, we build bridges between children and young people and a functional working life. Our operations are funded by several municipalities, organisations, ministries and foundations as well as private individuals.
Our organisation has about 60 permanent employees. We also employ nearly 200 part-time seasonal workers in our Yrityskylä activities.
Working life, economic and entrepreneurial skills for every child and young person
Our goal is to build bridges between children and young people and working life. We create space in society for learning and experimentation.
JA Finland – Nuorten yrittäjyys ja talous NYT – was founded on 1 June 2023 as Junior Achievement Finland and Economy and youth TAT combined their operations.
