JA Africa's work focuses on the economic empowerment of Africa's youth. We bridge the gap between what students learn in school and what they need to be successful professionals in adulthood. JA focuses on three key areas: Entrepreneurship, Work Readiness and Financial Literacy. Our experiential programs make these concepts come alive for students, using volunteers from the professional world to coach and mentor them as they consider their future careers. We believe that entrepreneurship is a key to enabling the burgeoning and marginalized youth population in Africa. We also believe in preparing young people to be successful either as employees who add value to their employers or as entrepreneurs who create jobs for themselves and others.
