Your time commitment will vary depending on the program you choose. For example, some programs are conducted in a single half-day session. Our Company Program volunteers dedicate 10-12 one or two hour sessions over the course of 16 weeks. Learn more about our programs and the time commitments here.
Some of our programs such as Investment Strategies are best suited to people who have expertise in this area, but many of our programs can be led by volunteers with more general life and business experience.
Our volunteers come from many different sectors including insurance, tourism, retail and high-tech to name a few. They are executives, managers, marketing/communication professionals, sales people, small business owners, customer service representatives, human resource managers, consultants, retirees…the list goes on!
We offer JA programs to all schools in southern Alberta. While we do our best to get in as many as possible, sometimes a little push is needed. A parent’s voice can help get our programs to your child’s school. If you’d like to know if your school is scheduled, or what programs they have signed up for, contact a member of our program team
