YCI Country Information
YCI's first programme in Puerto Rico will be launched in April, 2016 by the Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino and The Ritz-Carlton San Juan. The Marriott properties will pilot the life and work skills programme with support of Junior Achievement (JA), a global non-profit organization dedicated to educating students on workforce readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.
Junior Achievement programs help to prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. They have great presence in Americas region and by 2011, more than 1,100,000 students were benefited from the JA experience in the area."
