Due to the uncertainties surrounding the 2021/22 school year, JA is planning for a variety of scenarios. We are hoping to deliver our programs with in-person volunteers but will be prepared to offer all of the delivery options below.
Delivery options will include:
- In-person Volunteer: JA volunteers will facilitate programs to students in the classroom.
- Virtual Volunteer: JA volunteers will facilitate programs from their own workspace for student’s in-class.
- Teacher-led: JA will provide teachers with all the necessary tools and materials to facilitate programs in-class or online
- Self-directed online: Students will be provided with a link to access our online programs from their own workspace.
What is the time commitment to volunteer for JA?
Your time commitment will vary depending on the program you choose. For example, in school volunteering is 1-4 hours, and company program (after school) is 30+ hours. Learn more about our programs and the time commitments here.
