Investing in Chicago's future – equal opportunity through financial literacy
JEC brings together the most ambitious students from across the GTA to an unparalleled environment of discussion, networking and leadership opportunities.
JEC not only advocates for the importance of financial literacy in the modern world, but also gives its members a head start in their pursuit of a career in the financial or business sector. Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of initiatives to deepen their knowledge on relevant issues, develop a lifelong network of ambitious peers, and gain exposure to the financial sector through today’s leading professionals and relevant employment.
Since JEC is an entirely youth-led organization, all initiatives rely on the hard work of dedicated high school students. Through working to change the lives of others, our student leaders emerge changed themselves. Serving as a JEC Executive or Ambassador provides them with the opportunity to gain real-life experience and transferrable skills in a field of their interest (be it marketing, management, accounting, graphic design, etc.), along with the personal self-growth associated with successfully holding a leadership position.
