Future Skills High Impact Project

JA Malta is proud to announce the launch of the Future Skills High Impact Project, supported by HSBC Malta Foundation. Through this exciting new project JA Malta is embarking on a mission to impart essential financial fluency skills to the community by reaching 6000 people by 2023. Over the two year project, JA will continue to upskill businesses within the community as facilitators who will then deliver JA programmes to different cohorts from different demographics around Malta and Gozo.

With access to the wealth of practical knowledge and skills being delivered through this project, beneficiaries will feel a sense of empowerment when it comes to taking control of their personal finances.

JA Building a Financially Capable Generation

JA Malta, JA Worldwide and HSBC share a common mission: to enable students to gain the skill sets, mindsets, and behaviours they need to own their financial futures.

That is why we are working together to introduce students to financial concepts and behaviours such as rules of savings, budgeting practices, and the basics of credit and debt.

The JA Building a Financially Capable Generation learning experience is designed to reinforce characteristics and behaviours of a financially capable person.

European Young Entrepreneurs

JA Malta, Jämtlands Gymnasieförbund, from Sweden and Thora Storm videregående skole, from Norway partnered up as part of an Erasmus+ funded project to engage, connect and empower European Youth through transnational experiences. The first transnational mobility trip will be hosted by our Swedish partner in their hometown of Östersund. The attending delegates will have the opportunity to meet likeminded students from Sweden and Norway who are also participating in entrenrepreneuship programmes . The theme and purpose of this project is to serve as an opportunity to interact with other students participating in entrepreneurship programmes, increase employability amongst participants, establish a sustainable view of entrepreneurship in a post-covid world and increase interest and knowledge about business, start-ups and the start-up eco-system in other countries. Participation of the project is subject to the transnational meeting and subject to invitation.

Young Innovators

We partnered up with MCAST and Cimate-KIC Hub to deliver the Young Innovators (YI) programme in Malta. YI took off in Malta for the first time in 2021. It begins with a train-the-trainers approach to introduce systems thinking and critical problem-solving in secondary education and colleges. The programme culminates in a Young Climathon where students present their solutions to local climate challenges. Teachers are introduced to a variety of tried and tested resources and materials to then apply in their classrooms, bringing climate education into varying subjects from English to mathematics.
