This year marks 20 years of empowering young people at Junior Achievement Nigeria (JAN), an organisation set up with the aim of building a bridge between the classroom and the workplace.
To celebrate the occasion, the organisation has lined up several activities which will lead to the main event on October 4.
These events, which will also reflect JAN’s commitment to preparing and developing young Nigerians to compete effectively in the global workplace include a social media event which will run on the 20th of every month.
In October, the activities will culminate in an inaugural Youth Leadership Conference, Awards Luncheon, and Fundraising Dinner.
