This January, help us raise $30,000 for our Adopt a School campaign.   


Let's give students at Neskonlith Education Center and other schools in Indigenous communities the experience of a life-changing JA program in 2022. 

JA programs inspire, prepare and empower.

Students learn critical financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship knowledge and skills through programs provided through JA British Columbia (JABC). With your support, B.C. youth will become more optimistic about their future, more financially literate and better prepared to chart their future.  


Indigenous youth are the fastest growing population in Canada, and one of JABC's priorities is to expand and enhance access to programs for Indigenous youth by bringing more JA programs into Indigenous schools. Reaching our $30,000 goal means 17 JA programs can be delivered in Indigenous communities, reaching youth who may never have received a life-changing JA programming.


Plus, your donation will be matched!

Great news! 

Pankaj and Rita Agarwal are generously matching all gifts up to a total of $10,000. 

This means your donation can make twice the impact!

Pankaj and Rita believe in helping youth who may not have the same opportunities as others. This past year, they adopted two schools in Indigenous communities that empowered 48 students. Through the Adopt a School campaign, they were able to see the direct impact of their donation.

Donate today! 

All donations to JA British Columbia will receive a tax receipt. Charitable donations receive a federal and a provincial charitable tax credit, with an increasing return on larger gifts. The more you give, the higher your tax credit.

Thank you for your generous giving spirit this season.
