BahamaJAC 2024

Highlights

JA Bahamas wishes to extend our heartfelt gratitude to The Ayton Family Foundation for their generous donation to our BahamaJAC 2024 experience, which covered our meal costs to ensure that our achievers were provided with nutritious meals. Additionally, thank you for assisting our JA Andros Company Programme achievers by sponsoring their trip to New Providence for this impactful conference. We appreciate your continued support of our youth organization and mission, which is to ensure that students receive a financially literate education to succeed in a global economy.

Our 4-day BahamaJAC 2024 experience officially at Crypto Isle, where achievers attentively listened to our engaging guest speaker, Megan Jack, about the importance of the cybersecurity industry. Additionally, achievers were enlightened about preparing for their professional lives and investing in their future. We ended this exciting day with a Graycliff Chocolatier Experience and a tour of the famous 66 Steps!
