Junior Achievement of B.C. (JABC) is being backed by HSBC Bank Canada as it offers business education programs for youth across B.C. for the 2013-14 school year.
HSBC, a long-standing supporter of Junior Achievement, is continuing on as the sole funder of the organization’s investment strategies program (ISP), which it has supported since its inception in 2005.
ISP teaches students in secondary schools about investments, and in particular, teaches how markets operate using a stock market simulation with real-time data from the stock exchanges, in which student teams compete to grow their portfolios. HSBC’s past support also allowed for significant upgrades to the program.
In addition to program support, HSBC’s donation supports the Business Laureates of B.C. Hall of Fame gala and induction ceremonies.
Anyone interested in getting involved with Junior Achievement of B.C. should visit www.jabc.org, or call 1-604-688-3887.
