We are a Manx registered charity dedicated to helping the Island’s young people gain the essential skills they need when they leave full-time education.
As part of the worldwide Junior Achievement network, we run a wide range of programmes within primary and secondary schools.
Our programmes are designed to help children and young people increase their self-esteem, manage their personal finances, develop team working skills and understand how the world of business works.
What we do matters:
In a rapidly changing world, it’s important our young people are equipped with a range of life skills that will help them long after they leave education.
Junior Achievement programmes help more than 4,000 young people in primary and secondary education across the Isle of Man every year.
Each year we have to raise £300,000 in order that we can deliver our programmes at no cost to the schools.
How you can help:
Our programmes are run with the help of a wonderful team of volunteers from business and the wider community.
They work alongside the teacher in the classroom to deliver our programmes and each year we need more than 300 volunteers to make this happen.
Volunteers come from all walks of life and all backgrounds; some are retired, others have children in education and some work either part or full-time.
