2015-2016 JA Nova Scotia results are in and it is big news!
For the school year of 2015-2016, JA Nova Scotia set big goals. We wanted to reach more students, deliver more programs and engage more volunteers. To do so, we also needed to find more financial support.
Our priorities: to deliver excellence in hands-on entrepreneurial training; to support NS curriculum with career reflection and financial literacy programs; to encourage labour attachment and bring labour market information into the classroom; to reduce youth unemployment and encourage post-secondary education; and to contribute to the overall economic prosperity of NS by producing more financially literate graduates with accelerated leadership potential. Our programs are directly linked to developing workforce capacity and securing education and career futures for youth!
The results are in, and we are proud to report the following:
- A 36% increase in student reach (13,335 students)
- A 32% increase in programs delivered (604 province wide)
- A 35% increase in volunteers engaged in program delivery (805 volunteers)
- A 20% increase in donations and financial support
On behalf of the staff and volunteer board of directors, thank you for your support in inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in the global economy! With your help, today's youth are becoming tomorrow's leaders. Thank you!
Please contact me directly to join our community of support. We are already planning for 2016-2017 and it is going to be even bigger!
