The Legacy Project is governed by an advisory committee, chaired by Wadih Fares and including: Irene D’Entremont, Steve Smith, Frank Sobey, Chris Huskilson and Kristin Williams.


50 Years of JA in Nova Scotia Junior Achievement influenced me in the sense that I was a pure science student in high school. JA’s Company Program was offered for the first time in my Grade 12 year. I joined Company Program knowing nothing about business or having any interest in it. That choice was lifechanging! It steered me into my Business Degree (originally slated to complete the Human Kinetics program). I was immediately immersed in the Company Program and helped our company, Kulak, JA Company, to achieve Company of the Year by leading Kulak in sales. I was also a finalist for Salesperson of the Year and was awarded our Company’s Merit Award.

New Program Spotlight

JA Nova Scotia’s World of Choices Spring 2018 76 grade 9 classes • 7 events around the province • 1,687 students • 75 career mentors • Over 55 different professions What did students say about WOC?

What did teachers say about WOC?

“Being able to learn more about careers I am interested in and learn about careers I didn’t know I would be interested in.”

“I thought this was a wonderful event. I wish they’d had something like this when I was in school! I particularly enjoyed when the mentor was someone students could relate to and felt connected with.”

“I know more about the education necessary to get into a career in radio and television.” “I liked all of it, it was such a great experience!” “It was organized and informative. It helped me figure out what careers I might be interested in.”

16 ANNUAL REPORT 2017-2018

“I liked the feeling of independence and learning about new career options by myself.”

“I think the NSCC as a location was perfect and that most of the students had job [mentors] that were well suited to their interests. I hope this becomes an annual event for the grade nines in the future.” “This was a wonderful event and it really spark their passion…Showcasing careers that are important or needed in the future as well as some different ones they may not have considered before.”

THE MAJORITY OF STUDENTS KNEW VERY LITTLE ABOUT CAREERS BEFORE ATTENDING WOC STUDENTS FELT MORE PREPARED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN DEVELOPING AN EDUCATION AND CAREER PATH AFTER WOC
