Investment Strategies Program

British Columbia [change]

The Investment Strategies Program (ISP) is a learning opportunity for Grade 8-12 students to explore the ways in which people save and invest for their future. The program includes interactive lessons and culminates in an online stock market simulation, called Invest JA, where students manage their own simulated stock portfolio. The simulation is linked to live data from North American stock markets and is an engaging opportunity for students to apply the investing principles taught in the program.

The Investment Strategies Program is one of a series of programs offered by Junior Achievement of BC. Click here to view all JABC programs.

ISP is available in British Columbia as:

  • ISP Virtual where the teacher facilitates the program and is supported via a series of online videos of ISP volunteers. The videos support the teacher as the class works through the lessons and activities. This approach also includes the resources needed for the class to participate in the Invest JA stock market simulation. Watch the introduction video
