JA SOUTHERN ALBERTA: More than Money-Grade 4 (3 volunteers- 3 courses).

JA Southern Alberta has been proudly serving students for over 60 years. In partnership with educators and the dedication of volunteers, youth from kindergarten through grade 12 receive important educational programs and experiences thanks to the generosity of donors and sponsors. JA Programs focus on financial literacy, work-readiness, and entrepreneurship.

The school year is well under way, and so are JA programs! Join us in equipping the next generation to thrive in a global economy! We have many volunteer opportunities available in the Foothills region area this winter!
