JA Cyprus, 10 years of inspiring young people to aim high!

With the beginning of the new academic year, another start of our organization’s programmes is marked. This year is a milestone year for the organization as we turn 10 years of contribution and action in the education of our country.

During these 10 years, our joy and satisfaction is that we receive countless positive messages from our young men and women, and this cannot be replaced by any number. The experiences gained by so many thousands of children, the huge successes in competitions, the stimuli they received both from their teachers and from the business world, are a gift that will accompany them for the rest of their lives.

A new year is ahead of us with many challenges, innovative ideas, higher goals and of course with an endless zeal to offer to our young men and women.

The Organization is dedicated to addressing fundamental social and economic challenges of young people, educating, and empowering them to transform their futures and claim their personal and economic success.

JA Cyprus is a partnership between the business community, educators and volunteers. All work together to inspire young men and women to aim high and reach their potential. In total, in the 9 years of operation, 15,000 students and young people participated in the programmes with the support of approximately 900 volunteers from the business world and 1000 teachers.

By providing innovative, experiential learning in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship, JA Cyprus effectively broadens the canvas of possibilities for young men and women and enriches their ability to participate in the development of thriving communities.

Every young man and woman, of any age, should have access to the best opportunities for active participation in social and business life. We believe that anyone can succeed in today’s global economy. The progression model in JA shows how young people’s learning journey can be gradual, with new experiences reinforcing previous learning and preparing them for the next stage of development. At the present stage, the organization implements eleven programs starting from the Elementary School up to the University.

So, we wish everyone that this year will be just as productive and creative as the previous ones, with more opportunities, remarkable results and distinctions from our young men and women.
