YEARBOOK 2012â€“2013 Junior Achievement of Waterloo Region 29 King Street East, Unit B
Kitchener, ON N2G 2K4
The past year has been another exciting one for Junior Achievement of Waterloo Region. We continue our commitment to build relationships with individuals and companies that recognize the value JA brings to our community. The Board has been proud to support Aubrey and her team in their effort to grow Junior Achievement’s presence as one of the local organizations contributing to Waterloo Region’s local economy. By grooming future leaders and philanthropists, we lay the foundation needed to ensure this area continues to have a strong and diversified economic base. JA delivers on our promise to help local youth experience the excitement of running a business, understanding how to manage their personal finances and learning what will be expected of them when they enter the workplace. Our Christie JA Tech Camp is an example of how we innovate our program offerings in ways that appeal to today’s youth. We change the life of every participant in positive ways. Our staff, Aubrey, and both the Board of Directors and Board of Governors look forward to growing our financial performance and are dedicated to building a bigger and better future for Junior Achievement.
As our local economy continues to be driven forward by innovative and creative entrepreneurs, Junior Achievement’s role in fostering the next generation of entrepreneurs has never been more critical than it is today. Every year we foster the belief in our youth that they can realize their dreams – they can dare to take risks, and that launching their own business isn’t beyond the realm of possibility. We made some significant changes to our programs this year to better nurture and develop young people so that they can be successful and contributing citizens in our community - and quite possibly future entrepreneurs, business and community leaders. Changes to our programs included moving the Sun Life Student Company Program to new creative spaces like TheMuseum and Conestoga College’s Entrepreneurship Centre. We unveiled the Christie JA Tech Camp where campers learned how to build a business around a techbased product and redoubled our efforts to ensure that every senior public school student in the region experiences our essential life skills program, Economics for Success. We look forward to this new academic year. Our volunteers and students are a joy to work with.
Robin Todd Chair, Board of Directors
Aubrey Walters President & CEO
IN MEMORIUMS Junior Achievement felt a great loss this year with the passing of three key supporters and JA enthusiasts. We are proud and honoured that Roy Dahmer, Jack Forbes and Mark Kreller devoted their time, energy and resources to ensure Junior Achievement prospered in our community. Their legacy will live on through the young entrepreneurs we continue to nurture with the programs they helped build. “Say not in grief ‘he is no more’ but in thankfulness that ‘he was’.” - Hebrew Proverb

The idea of teaching youth how to build a business model around tech based products began as a conversation between Iain Klugman, President and CEO of Communitech and Aubrey Walters, President and CEO of Junior Achievement. The idea was brought to life by JA and in August of 2012, 20 local youth attended our first tech camp and were mentored by local industry experts.
