Raise Funds by Hosting an Event.
It starts with a great idea – and ends with the reward of making a donation that will enhance education and support local student success.
“Unlike at school, where you are provided with materials, taught a lesson, and given time to study; JA puts you in situations that make you think and act on your feet. You are tested first, and then you learn from your failures or your successes.”
~ Khadeer, JA Company participant and award winner
Children that grow vegetables in school are more likely to try nutritious foods. Your donation will support innovative programs like Classroom Gardens that bring school curriculum to life with hands-on learning experiences.
Retirees, students, recent graduates, working professionals and other community-minded individuals volunteer to help bring ONFE programs into classrooms across Ottawa. Our volunteers mentor, instruct, tutor, read, serve breakfast and more. They are central to our mission to support student success.
Our focus areas
Help students connect classroom learning with real-world problems and issues. Your investment will inspire high school students to develop needed soft skills for tomorrow’s careers and help foster a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation in our K-12 schools.
You can help us develop tomorrow’s leaders! Our volunteers teach JA curriculum and lead students through interactive learning activities, while sharing personal work-related experiences and knowledge. You can boost your company’s profile, develop your leadership and communication skills, and have a great deal of fun.
