  • Title: Junior Achievement Ireland - JAI Annual Report 2011
    Descriptive info: Chairman's Statement.. Brendan Doyle, Chairman of Junior Achievement Ireland.. (Director of Deloitte Ireland).. Junior Achievement Ireland is a not-for-profit organization with the aims of teaching enterprise skills to young people and targeting those at risk of early school leaving.. Working with public and private sector organisations, Junior Achievement Ireland offers schools a range of 17 enterprise, maths, science, life skills and diversity programmes for students aged 5-18 years, which are taught in the classroom by representatives from the business community.. In the 2010/2011 school year, Junior Achievement Ireland had 70,000 students participating in programmes.. Given the current economic climate we are very proud to have achieved an increase of almost 5,000 students over the previous school year.. More than 3,000 Business Volunteers were recruited to teach these programmes and it is a great tribute to our supporting organisations that they were so willing to meet our requests.. Junior Achievement's role in supporting young students to complete their education has never been more crucial.. With rising unemployment and increased demand for Third Level places, those who leave education with no qualifications are vulnerable to low-paid employment at best.. As the national drive towards a knowledge-based economy gains momentum, these young people's life opportunities become further diminished.. Junior Achievement continues therefore to focus on the designated disadvantaged DEIS schools.. In addition to our regular programmes, students took part in the following initiatives:.. Financial literacy and Company programmes (6,873 students).. Visits to Universities and Third Level Colleges (6,163).. Science and Maths Programmes and Events (18,086).. 'Workshops in the Workplace' (5,108).. Diversity Projects (2,050).. Enterprise and Life Skills Programmes (31,720).. Junior Achievement, in partnership with Young Enterprise Northern Ireland, continues to run the very successful KEY (Knowledge through Enterprise for Youth) Project, and the LET (Learning Enterprise Together) Project funded by the International Fund for Ireland reaching 1,500 young people annually.. These cross-border residential projects for 12-16 year olds promote mutual understanding and improve the employability of young people from the two traditions in Northern Ireland and from the six southern border counties.. In the 2010/11 school year a major project "Hand of Friendship", funded by the International Fund for Ireland was launched for 400 students aged 10-12 years.. Similar to KEY and LET, this project promotes peace and reconciliation on both a cross border and cross community basis.. This project provides a safe and supportive environment for young people to meet, learn and work together which is key to furthering community relations and helping foster peace and non-sectarianism.. Junior Achievement Ireland will continue to develop its reach in terms of designing and implementing programmes promoting peace and reconciliation in the Border Counties region.. Demand for Junior Achievement ireland programmes continues to grow so the challenge we are facing is to increase resources to meet this demand.. We need to continue to recruit more support from both the public and private sectors so that we can provide the necessary finance and business volunteers to reach out to more young people and help them make the successful transition from education into the workplace.. On behalf of the board, I would like to thank my fellow board and council members, all of our supporting organisations and sponsors in making it possible for Junior Achievement Ireland to fulfill its mission of encouraging young people to develop their skills through education and learning which is so much more important for Ireland in the current economic environment.. I would also like to express my very sincere appreciation to our business volunteers, school principals, teachers, students and especially Della Clancy, Executive Director and all the Junior Achievement Ireland staff for their great contribution in making 2010/11 such a wonderful success in a year of difficult economic circumstances.. Brendan Doyle.. Chairman, Junior Achievement Ireland.. Overview of 2010/11.. Della Clancy, Executive Director, Junior Achievement Ireland.. Junior Achievement Ireland has seen many changes in 2010/11..

"95% of students at high risk of leaving school early now not only wish to complete their leaving certificate but aim to attend third level college.. " This is just one of the outstanding results from the IT Tallaght sponsored Enterprise Challenge.. This year-long intensive program has taken place in 2010/2011 in IT Tallaght, Galway Mayo IT, Sligo IT and Limerick IT, helping to transform the ambitions, goals and confidence of almost 600 young people..
