Important update: A note on the impact of the COVID-19 virus on our programs

The health and safety of our students, volunteers and partners is of paramount importance to us. That’s why we are implementing some important changes to our schedule of programs and events as a result of escalated efforts to tackle the spread of COVID-19 in our region.

Day program delivery

Schools in Ontario are currently closed and will re-open on April 6th. As a result of these closures, all volunteer-led classroom programs scheduled up until April 6th have been postponed and will be rescheduled.

We hope to return to our in-class deliveries as soon as possible. However, if volunteers are unable to present in the classroom due to health and safety restrictions after April 6th, we are developing a digital delivery model to ensure students still have access to our programs.

These digital programs will include all possible elements of an in-person delivery but will remove the need for volunteers to enter schools. It will allow teachers to plan their JA program around their classroom schedules at this uncertain time.

We will share more information on this in the coming weeks.

Special student events

Unfortunately, many of our large student events will have to be cancelled or postponed. Wherever possible we will be offering a digital program or rescheduling these events.

We will be communicating individually with all partners and volunteers involved in our special events to inform them of any changes or cancellations.

If you have any questions about how this could affect your program, please get in touch at the link below.

Student registration

We have now closed program registration for the duration of this school year. If you are interested in signing up for programs for the next school year you are able to do so at this time through our online registration portal here.

If you had already registered for programs this year we hope to return to our in-class deliveries as soon as possible and will contact you if we are able to confirm presenters for your class. However, if volunteers are unable to present in the classroom due to health and safety restrictions after April 6th, we are developing a digital delivery model to ensure students still have access to our programs.

Company Program

Our Company Program team is currently working to make sure our fantastic student businesses continue to thrive at this time.

We will be contacting advisors and students to update them accordingly.

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the Company Program Tradeshow in-person event. But don’t worry, you can still shop the latest products from this year’s amazing products and businesses here!
