   About the Position

Impact Statement
Dedicated volunteers are at the core of JA’s impact on Canadian youth.

JA has pivoted our format from the traditional delivery style during the pandemic to still be able to deliver our programs to youth in Waterloo Region and surrounding area.

JA volunteers are generous, talented and inspiring. They come from a variety of business areas and share one common goal:
educating students and inspiring them to achieve their highest potential.

You will have 30 minutes to connect virtually with a group of students and share your career experiences and educational path. Sessions will also include a Q & A section where students can ask you questions related to the JA program content - focused on financial literacy, work readiness and personal experiences that you’ve had with these topics.
