Helping young people achieve more

Avanade has a mission to enable young people to achieve more through the power of our people and digital innovation. This mission has led to our signature partnership with Junior Achievement.

Through our partnership with Junior Achievement we support the development of youth skills for the digital era in order to help equip the future workforce. We have collaborated with Junior Achievement (JA) since 2016, supporting JA programs to teach young people -- the business leaders of the future -- about the world of technology, leadership and entrepreneurship.

“I am honored and delighted to be taking on the role of European Chair of Junior Achievement (JA). Helping organizations such as JA develop the skills of young people for the digital world and equipping the future workforce is something that I am personally passionate about. In addition, as JA’s Global Technology Partner, the Avanade team will bring fresh, innovative perspectives and expertise on the Microsoft ecosystem to help JA map out their digital path for the future.”
