Welcome to the Junior Achievement DREAM BIG, FLY HIGH donation wall.

In October this year, Junior Achievement launched a new appeal to help fund their training facility for volunteers and students.

A stunning donation wall has been created with the help of local artist Clare Payne who is the Biosphere Artist in Residence at the Manx Wildlife Trust. The wall has kindly been sponsored by Financial Options Ltd  www.financialoptions.co.im

The aim of the appeal is to raise £20,000. This is to help cover the running costs of the Junior Achievement training facility for the next three years.

This important space allows Junior Achievement to recruit and train the 250 volunteers needed to work in schools across the island, supporting more than 5,500 young people in education.

These volunteers donate their time to help young people to develop the life skills they will need to get a job or start their own business once they leave education.

In 2021 JA Volunteers donated more than 2,000 hours to work across primary and secondary schools in the Isle of Man.

Individuals and businesses have the opportunity to sponsor a seagull. Each bird will be inscribed with the name of the donor. The cost of each bird is £300.

To make a donation please email suecook@jaiom.im or telephone Sue on 01624 666266

A seagull will be added to each time a donation is made and the donor will receive the following:

The wall is located in the training facility of the Junior Achievement offices in Mount Havelock, Douglas and will be seen by everyone who uses the facility.

The facility will be made available free of charge to students who are taking part in the JA Company Programme. They will be able to use the meeting space and conference facilities to run their student business in a safe working space.

We would like to thank Financial Options Ltd for the generosity and for being the main sponsor of the donation wall.
