Empowering Black Youth Through Entrepreneurship

Business is Jammin’ (BIJ) is a province-wide charitable initiative that focuses on motivating Black youth and stresses the importance of education and personal development in all of its programs. BIJ’s goals are to deliver a comprehensive enterprise and entrepreneurship learning strategy and instill business skills that will offer long-term benefits to young people.
BIJ shapes youth into vibrant members of the business community. We work with young people through a range of educational, social, mentorship, and financial support programs to build business acumen and leadership skills. In the last decade we’ve helped inspire thousands of program participants to stay in school, start up their own ventures, and bring an exceptional level of professionalism to any workplace. We develop an extensive range of programs and work with youth to help address the needs of three segmented age groups: 8-15, 16-20 and 21-35.
BIJ has a proven value within both the Black community and the Atlantic  Canada economy. In the last two years alone, our program participation levels have grown by  more than 60%, a number that will only increase as we respond to rising demands from the  community for more Business is Jammin’ activities.
We envision a future where program participants will highlight their involvement with Business Is Jammin’ on resumes, business loan applications, and speaking engagements. We aim to be the  premier partner in mentoring and guiding Black youth to be in-demand members of the business  world.
