We will be recognized as vital to the success of our youth in reaching their potential through partnership with business and educators in the nationwide delivery of relevant business learning experiences by inspired volunteers.
Dear Donors and Partners:
As we reflect on the past year, I cannot help but have very mixed feelings. This has been a difficult year for everyone and though our experiences have not been the same, we as a province certainly came together during this pandemic.
JA Manitoba was headed for a record number of programs delivered and a significant financial surplus but COVID had other plans for us, like many non-profits and for profit businesses. That being said, we had to change our focus, to certainly be more flexible and change our programs. In a matter of weeks, we digitized our signature programs through a national collaboration of the JA network across Canada so that we could continue to offer our youth the opportunity to learn at home.
We have worked hard over the past number of months to have a suite of programs that are efficient and convenient for our educators to use. We know that this year will be once again challenging during the pandemic but we here at JA are committed to continuing the financial literacy education of young Manitobans.
In this annual report, we highlight some of the great accomplishments of our students across Manitoba. Finally, thank you to all of financial donors, volunteers and educators. We are deeply grateful for your support.
Greg Leipsic, President & CEO
