Our Vision of Impact

Young people participating in JA Central Ontario experiences gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to realize the opportunities, and realities, of work, school, and life.

These experiences fuel students’ dreams, bolster their potential, and create the foundation for the economy and society of tomorrow.

It is our vision that Central Ontario’s young people are economically empowered with the skills, experiences and relationships necessary to lead fulfilling lives and shape tomorrow’s society and economy.
