The golden steps that represent the path towards success!

The Students – The Business Enterprise – The Volunteers:


Junior Achievement Young Enterprise (JAYE) Malta Foundation is a non-profit entrepreneurship education institution, specialising in providing entrepreneurship education programmes to young people (Aged 8 to 30) attending academic or vocational education institutions in Malta and Gozo since our establishment in 1989.

Our aims to bring the public and private sectors together to provide young people in primary, secondary schools and early university with high-quality education programmes which teaches them about enterprise, entrepreneurship, business and economics in a practical way. The participants of the various programmes are all very enthusiastic about the experience.

We are famous in Malta for our delivery of the Company Programme, where more than 5000 students since 1989 have completed and become achievers through this experience. Students are given the opportunity to acquire and develop a number of soft skills such as team building, time management and risk assessment in a learning-by-doing environment. The experience gained is invaluable and unforgettable as described by our Alumni. JAYE Malta is also a member of the European Organisation Junior Achievement Europe.
