This victory not only celebrates their hard work but also the impactful mentorship and guidance provided through JA Malta’s programmes.

In a generous move, all proceeds generated by Team ReMind will be donated to the Malta Dementia Society, showcasing the team’s commitment to social responsibility and community support. This decision highlights the compassionate and altruistic values that JA Malta instills in young entrepreneurs, emphasising the importance of giving back to the community.

JA Malta remains dedicated to inspiring and equipping young individuals to excel in a global economy, with a strong focus on entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and workplace readiness.
