I Have Skills is a fun, interactive program designed to engage students ages 8-10 in learning about their skills and interests and to show them how those skills and interests can help develop various career paths.

The program is divided into six subsequent activities which vary in length. I Have Skills can be delivered by you, the teacher, or a community volunteer. If you wish to have a volunteer in your classroom, Junior Achievement will gladly connect you with one to deliver this program to your students. At the end of the program, each student will be presented with a Certificate of Accomplishment.

In Nova Scotia, this program is offered to elementary students
