Life Skills-Related: INJAZ programs help students gain insight into the complexities and rewards of entrepreneurship and business in today’s interdependent market economy. Successful local business leaders serve as classroom mentors to make the economic concepts relevant, fuel entrepreneurial spirits, and challenge students to excel. INJAZ recruits private sector volunteers to work directly with the students. In doing so, INJAZ programs effectively bridge the gap between the classroom environment and the workplace.
