THANK YOU to our volunteers
National Volunteer Week, which took place April 15–21, 2018, provided a great opportunity for us to celebrate all our volunteers for their valuable contributions.
At JA Quebec, some 500 volunteers give their time every year to teach financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness to young Quebecers. With every program they deliver to students, they share an incredibly generous gift: their knowledge, advice and expertise. Our volunteers are true rock stars; the dedication, passion and time they invest in preparing the next generation are critical to JA Quebec's mission. Without their help, it would not be possible to bring our classroom and after-school programs to Quebec schools.
It is an honour to be able to count on the extraordinary commitment of our volunteers, who proudly represent JA across Quebec. We sincerely thank you for all that you do and hope you will continue to be on JA's team of amazing volunteers for years to come.
