There is no doubt that we are living through a time of change, challenge and opportunity.

In the last school year, JA Central Ontario met students where they were, at home and online, with our fully digital learning experiences and online events.
Moving in-person programs online challenged JA Central Ontario to put into practice what we teach our students: an entrepreneurial mindset, agility, creativity and leadership. From classroom learning to fundraising, our staff and volunteers came together to respond to a once-in-a-lifetime challenge: continue providing learning experiences that deliver an impact to all student participants.

We can’t wait to show you everything we’ve been up to this past year! Download the full report and find out more.
