Dear JABC Community,

I am thrilled to let you know that JA Worldwide has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. This nomination is an incredible honour for the entire JA network, which includes JA British Columbia.

“Peace is only possible when youth in all countries and regions have economic empowerment. JA Worldwide is honored to receive this nomination and will continue our work to enable all young people to have the skillset and mindset to build thriving communities.

Our primary hope for solving the world’s most complex problems rests in the young people of today who will be the leaders of tomorrow.”

-Asheesh Advani, CEO of JA Worldwide

We here at JA British Columbia wholeheartedly believe in economically empowering young people and are proud to work with such an impactful international organization. An investment in JA is an investment in the success of the next generation.

We are very thankful for this recognition, and so grateful for your support across British Columbia.


Sheila Biggers
