You can make a difference in young people’s lives.

How to budget. The importance of a savings plan. What it takes to launch a business. What to do during a job interview. Don’t you wish someone talked to you about these topics when you were growing up? Now there is someone: YOU.

All we need is your interest, life experience and enthusiasm this fall to facilitate work readiness, financial health and entrepreneurship programs to British Columbia youth in grades 4-12.  JABC provides the training, curriculum, materials, and a classroom of students ready to meet you!
