Junior Achievement (JA)

1 May

Junior Achievement (JA) is dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in the global economy, through their applied learning programs in work readiness, entrepreneurial thinking and financial literacy.

JA HK is one of the 100+ members of JA Worldwide, and a leading provider of Other Learning Experiences in Hong Kong. Their programs enable young people to learn the world of work from the first-hand experience of business volunteers. Since their establishment in 2001, JA HK has engaged the support of over 21,000 business volunteers from some 700 companies to serve more than 330,000 students from over 600 schools.

JA HK is a registered not-for-profit, tax-exempt charity under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance in Hong Kong. The organization does not receive annual subvention from the government. Their success hinges on the strong partnership with and valuable support from different stakeholders in the community. Partner companies and individuals contribute and support their organization in different ways.

Student Volunteers: JA HK provides an excellent service learning opportunity for student volunteers. They are keen to recruit more university student volunteers to deliver their two primary school programs, JA Play Lab and JA More Than Money. Students can also volunteer at the JA HK office as administrative support to gain experience on the operation of a not-for-profit organisation. Through volunteering, students develop their collaboration and communication skills.
