Our Events

Future Leaders Week

April 30 to May 4

Junior Achievement of Northern Alberta & NWT is hosting Future Leaders Week with the JR Shaw School of Business at NAIT from April 30 to May 4.  More than 3000 junior high and high school students from the greater Edmonton area will be visiting the Centre for Applied Technology to learn lessons on financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship.

Our programs are delivered by volunteers from the business community- volunteers who not only teach the objectives of the JA programs but also share their own stories of success, the challenges they’ve faced, and the knowledge they’ve gained throughout their own journeys.  These volunteers bring the magic to our programs; without them, we couldn’t inspire and engage students the way that we do.

Each day will kick off with a motivational talk from a local leader; students will also have the opportunity to explore other community services and programs offered at NAIT.
