Did you know that today is International Volunteer Day?


As we celebrate the power and positive impact that volunteers make, JA Canada would like to sincerely thank the 11,279 volunteers who helped to support 248,000 students across Canada last year. These volunteers donated more than 170,000 hours of their time to help JA deliver cutting-edge, hands-on financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work-readiness learning.

There is no doubt that we couldn’t do this without our volunteers.  JA volunteers are generous with their time and are committed to educating students and inspiring them to achieve their highest potential.


Thanks to the dedicated volunteers who took the time to share their real-life experiences in the classroom, JA was able to inspire youth to explore their career possibilities, learn how to manage their finances, start a company and, ultimately succeed in an ever-changing global economy. 

THANK YOU for being a volunteer and making an outstanding and positive difference in the lives of our students!
