“for anyone remotely interested in business, we implore you to check out JA and give it a shot, it has given all of us several opportunities and has shown us what the business world can offer.There are many opportunities attached to this program that are very beneficial as the year is slowly coming to an end we’ve all looked back and not a single one of us regrets our decision of signing up for this company. We’reextremely happy with what we’ve taken away from this and we’re looking forward to the remainder of the year and what possibly lies ahead.” JA Nova Scotia’s Company Program allows students in Grades 9-12 to launch and run their own business over the course 18weeks. Students gain the knowledge needed to organize and operate an actual business enterprise while receiving guidance and support from mentors in the business community. While operating their businesses, participants, sell shares, produce and market a product or service, and appoint a management team that best suits their company. They also learn to maintain and analyze financial records that will help them establish and monitor production and sales goals during the span of the program. This is all accompanied by exciting events, such as Pitch It! (JA’s version of a live Dragon’s Den), Executive Training (a full day of professional development) and award and scholarship opportunities. - Shoreline Co. Team

“Brilliant Labs in Gaetz Brook Junior High is a special place. This space allowed us to create a space in the school that was dedicated to our company Shoreline Co. We were able to utilize some of the technology to assist with marketing and it helped the students realize the possibilities they can have - only limited by their imagination. Thank you Brilliant Labs!”
