JA Korea, a member of the nonprofit organization JA Worldwide, is dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for the future, and make academic and economic choices. JA Korea programs provide the youth with financial and digital literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship free of charge. Since its foundation in 2002, JA Korea has been developing and managing a diverse range of educational programs for students as young as kindergarten and as old as university. To date, JA Korea has offered educational programs for about 1.7 million students with around 100,000 volunteers, teachers and lecturers in collaboration with both Korean local and global companies including HSBC, Starbucks, BNP Paribas Cardif, Boeing, and more.
JA Worldwide was established in 1919. As one of the world’s largest and most-impactful youth-serving NGOs, JA Worldwide reaches more than 10 million young people each year in over 100 countries. This year, JA Worldwide was nominated for the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize for making a positive impact on individuals, communities, and countries through their volunteering and educational activities.
At the agreement ceremony held on May 9, 2022, transcosmos Korea and JA Korea kicked off a joint project Na-num, which means to share more with others in the traditional Korean language. As the name suggests, the two parties aim to share and equip young people with the skillset and mindset they need. transcosmos Korea will provide career and vocational education and training for students attending science, technology, engineering and math high schools, as well as internship programs with an opportunity to become a member of the company.
transcosmos Korea has also donated 100 million won to JA Korea to support their cause – boost youth education. The donations are planned to be used for running youth education programs and creating educational materials.
“We are honored and delighted to form a business partnership with JA Korea, a member of the leading NGO that assists young people – the next generation of leaders - in building their own future,” Kwon Sang-chuel, President and COO at transcosmos Korea said. “I hope our activities towards sharing knowledge with youth from outside of schools will make a difference to society and that the movement will spread across the world. We also expect that educators will grow together with young students, inspiring each other.”
