Junior Achievement’s Economics for Success (EFS) is an interactive program designed to encourage students to consider how they can prepare to enter the world of work. This preparation involves identifying personal interests, skills, strengths, and passions; mapping them to career clusters; learning to budget; developing interviewing skills and strategies to achieve educational and career goals
The programs links very closely with outcomes for Citizenship and Healthy Living but also financial literacy outcomes in Math. Economics for Success is available in English or French.
This in-school program, for grade 9 students, has been reimagined for flexible delivery. The teacher will deliver most of the program, with these options: Teachers can deliver the program fully on their own with the option to include pre-recorded volunteer-delivered content, or arrange for a virtual-live volunteer or an in-class volunteer to do an hour of programming. We try to be as flexible as possible to support teachers!
All program materials and trained volunteers are provided by Junior Achievement free of charge to students and schools. Specific dates and times will be scheduled for in-person or virtual-live programming. A suggested agenda will be provided with options for additional or reduced content.
