JA Core Curricula in High Schools

As part of Junior Achievement implementation framework in Albania, Mr. Martin Mata Co-CEO of Albanian-American Development Foundation and Mrs. Lindita Nikolla, Minister of Education, Sports and Youth, signed the Memorandum of Understanding on continuation of JA program as high school core curricula. Memorandum promotes entrepreneurship education for high school students emphasizing the importance of practical and project based learning. These modules, didactic toolkits, teacher training, business community engagement and organisation of activities in local and national level will feed student’s competence on entrepreneurship, enhance financial literacy and market knowledge and will contribute to closing the gap between education and the labor market. Junior Achievement program in Albania is in its sixth year of implementation as a strategic investment of Albanian-American Development Foundation and an institutional support of the Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth.
