JASP, is a combination of afterschool workshops, including research and projects, along with workplace training and community volunteer-ism. Participants of this project will explore the school to work transition. The project has 4 pre-employment skills objectives and 4 financial literacy objectives:

Financial Literacy Skills:
Partnering with SEED Winnipeg's Money Stories: Grounding Aboriginal Youth in the Lessons of their Elders, our students will explore skill to manage and resolve financial problems. JASP will focus on 4 financial objectives;
1.) Financial knowledge and understanding:
2.) Financial skills and competence
3.) Financial responsibility.
4.) Asset Building. Partnering with SEED Winnipeg and Assiniboine Credit Union students will obtain birth certificates, Social Insurance Numbers and open bank accounts.
