Taaleri has been a supporter of Junior Achievement Finland’s operations since 2016.

The non-profit organisation’s operations are based on experiential learning for young people and on active collaboration between schools and the business world. Together we want to have an impact on the working skills of young people, their entrepreneurship know-how and attitudes, and their financial skills.

We have been part of a jury to select the winner of the Pikkuyrittäjät competition and the winners of the Uskalla yrittää competition. In 2018, in partnership with Uskalla yrittää, we established Taaleri Luola, a new category for the competition. In Taaleri Luola, five entrepreneur teams selected from the finalists have the opportunity to pitch their business idea on stage at the Suomi Areena to a jury appointed by Taaleri.

We have participated multiple times in the Job Shadow day that is held annually in October. In the Vuosi Yrittäjänä programme, young students who are running their own business as a part of their secondary or upper secondary studies “shadow” managers and become familiar with the working world. Young people gain experience in working and the company gains experience in how young people think about things and how they see the future.

Taaleri wants to take social responsibility by showing an interest in young people and, e.g., by offering these kinds of glimpses into the working world. The responsibility for creating jobs and finding jobs is increasingly with the individual. We all have a responsibility to provide young people with good examples, to share experiences, and to support them on their path to success. Taaleri is very involved also in this effort.
