Parents

“(My daughter) is more independent and confident. She doesn’t seem to be as frustrated when she makes mistakes…I would absolutely recommend jEM to others. It teaches them how to be responsible and respectful of others and their opinions, while getting their opinions across at the same time”

“The guest speakers are great because they give the kids an idea of how employers think.”

“I would definitely recommend jEM to others; it’s an awesome program. One of the main benefits is that it allows kids to think outside the box and challenge themselves. It lets them know that anything is possible with hard work. It’s good to catch them at a young age, and the combination of education and entrepreneurship is great. I am thoroughly satisfied with the program!”
