The Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce and the Cloverdale B.I.A. with Junior Achievement of B.C. are seeking business people to be volunteer mentors for student programs in the Cloverdale area. We are looking to match business mentors to students who have expressed an interest in a chosen field. JABC offers several programs geared towards different age groups.
JABC provides you with all the materials, support and training you need to help make your experience fun and easy to deliver. Time commitment for mentors training is app.1.5 hours, and the sessions with students are 1 hour per week for 4 to 6 weeks. The program starts in April.
With the support and guidance of business teachers and volunteer advisors from the local business community, JA’s Company Program will give secondary school students the knowledge needed to organize and operate an actual business enterprise. Students will learn what risks and rewards come with owning a business and how to build positive relationships with the community.
The JABC program “Be Entrepreneurial Business Pitch” challenges students to start planning their own entrepreneurial venture while still in school. Be Entrepreneurial provides students with engaging and enriching lessons in order to help prepare them to write a business plan.
