Commitment by

Junior Achievement Of Africa

In 2015, Junior Achievement (JA) Africa commits to identify, train, and nurture 500 young African entrepreneurs between the ages of 15 and 35 from Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, and Ghana. JA Africa will address the need to teach entrepreneurship to marginalized African youth, especially those out of school, as a critical necessity for the economic growth and stability of African communities. These youth will gain practical exposure to real business through apprenticeships and mentoring opportunities. At the end of the program, they will compete for the JA Africa regional prize for the best youth owned business.
