Microsoft supports programs

Junior Achievement of B.C.’s business education and financial literacy programs boosted by Microsoft Corporation donation.

Junior Achievement of B.C.’s business education and financial literacy programs are booting up thanks to a $30,000 in-kind donation by Microsoft Corporation.

The software giant donated software to support programs JABC offers free to students in Grades 5 through 12. Through its citizenship efforts, Microsoft provides technology tools, training and resources that can create opportunities and transform communities.

JABC’s business education programs provide students with workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills. The new software from Microsoft will help JABC in its goal to double the number of students it reaches in B.C. every year, by 2018.
