To celebrate Global Money Week 2021, Junior Achievement Dominica planned different events, especially digital contests. The official theme of GMW2021 “Take care of yourself, take care of your money” inspired many ideas. For example, it sparked a discussion with the youth on understanding what does the theme mean to them as a young person going through the global pandemic. Top three winners of the digital contests received prizes. The winner won a tour to the banking institute to better understand the financial world.

During Global Money Week 2017, Junior Achievement Dominica partnered with Kachibona Academy, the National Cooperative Credit Union, Jolly’s Pharmacy and Harris Paints to put on a week of excitement, hosting the Business Town at the Public Service Union. During the Week, 165 students visited the Public Service Union Business Town which featured simulation games and activities for students to engage in money activities.

The Global Money Week activities also engaged partners to begin discussions about youth finance and, while students began action campaigns at their schools encouraging the student bodies to save money, take responsibility over financial conduct and to invest time to learn about important financial principles. Media partners were also encouraged to share the activities.

Furthermore, JA Dominica was featured on Youth Camera Action during the Week, and partnered with the Dominica State College to give MONEY TIPS as part of their MONEY GURU Financial Literacy Campaign, asking students to become more engaged in financial literacy outreach strategies for the innovate campaign.

The Global Money Week Dominica Team also joined the Selfie Challenge! Their purpose was to share how the Team was using Global Money Week to share their message about youth finance and how they were personally having money conversations such as “Why we save!” Their message was “We Save Because our Future Matters” with the tagline #MoneyGoals: Education, Health, House, Business & Travel.
