Andrews Hockey Growth Programs team up with Junior Achievement on PEI to motivate kids to 'Dream Big'.

Andrews Hockey Growth Programs have been helping young people reach their dreams for over 30 years. This summer, Andrews Hockey has teamed up with Junior Achievement on PEI to present their 'Dream Big' program.

"Dream Big is a program designed to motivate kids and provide them with the tools to realize their personal potential. Andrew's Hockey mission statement reflects what Junior Achievement’s  Dream Big Program is all about - to develop, educate and enhance the lives of young people to help them reach their full potential. This partnership is a wonderful opportunity to broaden the delivery of Junior Achievement’s programs with a footprint that will spread across Canada," says JAPEI President Betty Ferguson.

This unique partnership is a first of its kind in Canada and has introduced hundreds of hockey camp attendees this summer to business basics, while attending a first class hockey skills and leadership training program. Allan Andrews describes this partnership "as a natural extension of our interest in exploring the potential of all our athletes."

Dream Big participants are encouraged to explore their personal potential through discussions and interactive exercises. Students engage their talents and desires to overcome resistance break through barriers and access the resources needed to make dreams come true.

• Visualize and illustrate short and long-term aspirations

• Recognize personal values and their importance in actions

• Prepare a plan for achieving goals

• Identify mentors and role models to support this journey

Like other Junior Achievement programs, Dream Big is curriculum-linked, student centered and skills focused.

Junior Achievement of Prince Edward Island continues to build momentum on the success of its programs. JAPEI represents a unique partnership between business and education that continues to thrive all across our Island. JAPEI continues to inspire our Island youth to pursue careers in business and reach their potential in an ever changing economy.
