Junior Achievement Young Enterprise Malta Foundation, formerly known as Young Enterprise, is holding a gala dinner at the InterContinental Hotel in celebration of its 30th anniversary on the 6th December. All JAYE alumni, mentors, and friends are welcome to attend, to commemorate the achievements accomplished throughout the past 30 years and those ahead. It aims to honour all those who have participated and have become some of Malta’s top businesses, along with volunteers who have helped students achieve their career dreams. Furthermore, the event will applaud the initial vision of the founders, staff and board members who have contributed to developing the organisation’s unique approach.
JAYE Malta is also launching a People’s Choice Award for each decade. The winners will be announced during the gala dinner. The public is invited to nominate anyone who has contributed to the organisation and best represents their spirit. “We invite everybody to share their JAYE story with us on 6 December as we celebrate the achievement of JAYE Malta as much as that of the hundreds of JAYE alumni who have benefitted from our non-formal educational experiences provided by our programmes over the past 30 years,” says Julian Azzopardi, CEO of JAYE Malta.
Since being founded, JAYE has introduced nine school programmes, two of which have been awarded Level 3 accreditation (MQF3). Despite not being a replacement of the required O’ Levels for entry into post-secondary, the learning outcomes and educational achievements of the programmes are equivalent to those obtained at O’ Level.
“This celebration is an opportunity for JAYE alumni to give something back and for us to thank the many volunteers who have given their time, advice, energy, enthusiasm and support to students over the decades. Equally, it is a time to thank the many organisations that have funded us, sponsored us and kept us going in so many ways. More critically, it is also an opportunity to reaffirm the value and relevance of JAYE Malta’s work to the working world and our youth of today, and tomorrow,” Mr Azzopardi concludes.
