JA Europe Launches "JA Back to School" Entrepreneurial Education Campaign
JA Europe is calling on businesses and policymakers to increase investment in and support of entrepreneurship education. Research shows that young people who participate in entrepreneurship programs are five times more likely to start their own businesses, are less likely to drop out or be unemployed, and are more likely to earn higher incomes.
Our CEO, Asheesh Advani, participated in yesterday's launch. You can help by posting your own sign using the #jaB2S hashtag on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or LinkedIn, and encouraging your local schools and businesses to support more entrepreneurial education as part of your school's curriculum.
