About the Program

At the JA Innovation Camp, students gather in order to address a specific business challenge derived by a partnering company/business and come up with ideas which solve the problem. It is an intense experience for the students since they have to propose solutions within a very limited time, given access to tools, information and resources. The students have the possibility to foster an understanding of the world of work and a spirit of entrepreneurship through the principle of “Learning by Doing”.

They are able to develop their interpersonal as well as problem-solving skills and learn to work under very tight deadlines. It helps to plunge young people head-first into a short, one-day experience into the world of work. The camp is tremendously challenging and fun for the students-a precursor or add-on to
in-school entrepreneurship experiences of the Junior Achievement Company Program.
