JA-YE Europe JA-YE Core Programmes

Enterprise without Borders

Enterprise without Borders is a high school and/or college programme that gives students an international entrepreneurial experience. The programme is designed to give students running mini-companies the opportunity to create cross-border international partnerships as part of their JA-YE experience. Through a dedicated website (www.ewb.ja-ye.org), teachers and schools can register to participate and students can upload their company profile, share ideas; sell each others’ products in each others’ markets and they can potentially reduce costs by sourcing certain services or product components from other countries.

The students learn the basics of international business, set up and operate a company, work with students from othernations and come to appreciate the diversity and benefits of other cultures.  During their 8 to 12 weeks of trading students work together with a volunteer business adviser
