It serves as a great venue to closely connect young JA students with real leaders in the public and private sector. Young leaders from JA high schools in Albania have the rare and unique opportunity to shadow a real business leader in his/her work day and get a sense of what it means to lead, to manage, to direct, and to take everyday decisions responsibly. JA students spend an entire day beside prominent leaders and follow the work process up close, learning first-hand some of the complexities that come with this engaging role. Each year, businessmen/women, politicians and leaders from all walks of life, serve as role models to thousands of young people. It culminates with a Gala Ceremony featuring high public figures, diplomatic representatives, international NGOs’ representatives, top level leaders of the Albanian business community, teachers and parents of JAA students.
