High school students eager to gain hands-on business skills while still at school are invited to register for this year’s Junior Achievement Company Programme.
The course, which runs from 16 October for 18 weeks, is open to all budding entrepreneurs, said a JA press release.
Applications are available from the Chamber of Commerce and participating schools. The submission deadline is 21 September.
The programme will provide a chance to put business theory into practice by helping youngsters run their own business.
Students will be helped to start a company from electing officers, producing and marketing a product/service, through to liquidation and the distribution of profits to stockholders.
The release adds that those involved in the programme will have many rewarding experiences. While giving their time, talents and commitment, in return, they will gain valuable contacts and references, and workplace skills/career opportunities.
Corporations and businesses interested in how they can support the programme may call the Junior Achievement office at 949-4306.
Details for the programme on Cayman Brac will be made available at a later date.
