1 minute read

By Sheldon Spackman

RDC’s Donald School of Business has announced a new partnership with Junior Achievement Southern Alberta that aims to raise awareness around entreprenuership for both students and youth.

This fall, students in the Business Administration diploma program who are taking a marketing communications course, will be putting their theoretical knowledge to work for JA Southern Alberta.

Officials say the RDC business students will develop a marketing communications plan for JA, allowing the students to apply what they have learned and creating recommendations for a real organization.

For JA Southern Alberta, this sharing of expertise and resources is a positive opportunity that will help to instill the entrepreneurial spirit in young people across central Alberta. Currently, JA offers seven different programs for roughly 2,00 students in grades five through 12 each school year.

The curriculum-aligned programs are offered free of charge and they are delivered by business volunteers who are trained for their roles working with students. In addition to the project that the Business Administration diploma students are currently undertaking, future possibilities for students may include volunteerism and other opportunities for practical experience.
