Royden Richardson National JA Volunteer Award

Celebrating Outstanding Volunteers

The Royden Richardson National Volunteer Awards were inspired by Royden Richardson, a longtime JA volunteer.  They recognize volunteers whose participation in, and lasting contribution to, JA and its programs locally and/or nationally has immeasurably furthered the aims and objectives of JA in Canada.  Two awards are available – one for a Program Volunteer, the other for a Governance Volunteer.
