Don’t miss JA Holiday Market on Saturday, 16 December at Camana Bay!

Mark the date!  Five different companies created by Junior Achievement (JA) students will be showcasing their unique products at the JA Holiday Market, held at The Paseo, Camana Bay, on Saturday, 16 December from 4 pm to 8 pm.   

The JA Companies programme encourages the Year 11 students, drawn from Cayman’s High Schools, to start their own businesses, and develop their own products and marketing strategies, with the help of experienced business advisors from member companies, who volunteer to guide the students.

“We would love to see as many people come out to support the market,” said Programme Coordinator Swan Sandoval. “This market represents the culmination of eight weeks of hard work, both from the students themselves, and volunteers from each of the advisor companies, without whose help and guidance the programme could not have gone ahead. A huge thank-you to Cayman Airways, CIMA, CITCO, Dart, and MUFG.”

Around 12 students, aged between 16 to 18, comprise each of the companies, creatively using their talents to form teams that make unique products, market and sell them. “Recreate,” is acompany focusing on reusing, recycling, and repurposing. “Beaded and Braided,” makes beautiful and unique jewelry, while “Crafted” is a company making wonderful wire sculptures for home décor. “Prop – focuses on plant propagation, while “Interlocked,” makes beautiful jewelry holders.

If you would like to find out more, and maybe pick up some unique gifts for Christmas, then come to the JA Holiday Market to support Cayman’s next generation of entrepreneurs.
