Job Description: Manager, Company Program

JA’s Company Program offers high school students an experiential business opportunity that takes them on a journey of triumphs, failures, and, ultimately, discovery.   The 18-week program is open to all high school students in grades 9-12 across Central Ontario. Generous corporate partners throughout the community not only provide the funding for the program but also provide the meeting space and most importantly employees from their organizations who act as Advisors for the duration of the program. Under the guidance of the Volunteer Advisors, students create, manage, and liquidate a business in 18 weeks.  They use real money, real products, and have real customers.   Please visit www.jacocompanyprogram.ca for more information.
