WHO THEY ARE
Founded in 1919, Junior Achievement is the oldest, largest and fastest growing business and economic not–for–profit education organisation in the world. Globally the programme is growing, and through local corporate sponsorship the programme is continuing to grow in the Cayman Islands.
The Junior Achievement programme in the Cayman Islands was established in 1991 by the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Central. Major financial support is currently provided by the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Central and the Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce.
Junior Achievement Cayman Islands has been giving young entreprenuers a head start into the business community, while still in high school. It serves to educate and inspire young people to value free enterprise, understand business and economics, and be workforce ready.
