Seven secondary schools in Chipata will benefit from the Junior Achievement Company programme.
This is a programme that will help learners, learn how business operates, acquire life skills and also tips on how to make informed career choices.
This has been done to solve challenges of youth unemployment especially to those who do not prepare for their experience after leaving school.
This came to light this morning during the orientation meeting for the Junior Achievement Company programme sponsored by Citibank Zambia limited in Chipata.
Speaking during the occasion, Senior Education Standards Officer Linah Kamanga says when exposed, learners will be able to make choices in their lives and contribute to national development and wealth creation.
Mrs. Kamanga says the programme will inspire and motivate leaners adding that they will reaffirm their commitment to achieving their career aspiration.
She says that the programme is not only important for local competition but also for Zambia to present the best team at the Africa regional JA Company competition in December this year.
