In this joyful season of holiday cheer, we'd like to wish you very happy holidays!

On behalf of the 6,500 students who benefited from your generosity throughout the year, we’d like to say thank you! Your involvement and support have meant that young people got the real-world experience and skills they need to succeed in their professional life. This year, we inspired students to set goals and work toward them, encouraged self-discovery, helped students understand that the choices they make now will often have an impact on their future financial independence, and gave them a real introduction to entrepreneurship. And it's thanks to the dedication of each and every one of you that they've developed skills they'll use throughout their entire lives.

Many thanks to our partners, volunteers and strategic allies! Thank you for believing in the importance of our mission and playing an active role in developing it.

From all of us at JA Quebec, happy holidays!
May your holiday season sparkle with the joy of sharing!

School Programs achievements
Since September 2018, some 63 volunteers educated more than 1,150 students on financial literacy and entrepreneurship, delivering 46 classes in primary and secondary schools in Montreal and surrounding areas.

Thank you all for your commitment and the great work you are doing for the next generation!

Beginning in January 2019, we'll be offering nearly 150 classes in Montreal and other cities in Quebec.

7 Partner Days are planned for after the holidays. During our Partner Days, volunteers from a particular partner company deliver our programs on the same day in a particular school. Our partners love this very popular team-building activity, which also gives them exceptional visibility.

4 Lunch and Learn events are being planned with our partners to recruit volunteers.

5 new schools since fall: Nook Homeschoolers' Centre, McMasterville alternative school, Collège Bourget, Pensionnat Saint-Nom-de-Marie, Académie de Roberval, and École Saint-Barthélemy (international program).

The Investor Hero financial video game was tested with 2 classes at Collège d'Anjou and was a hit with young students in our financial literacy programs. This amazing innovation will be coming soon to more classes!
