Igniting Ottawa's Future Leaders, adapting to the new reality
JA Ottawa is shifting its programs to continue to nurture Ottawa's youth during this unprecedented school year.
In pandemic school closures, JA Canada created an online portal that can be used as a teaching tool by parents and teachers, and also contains self-directed modules for students. ONFE has staff and volunteers who can help teachers deliver these programs – contact Kristina Price at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
World of Choices connects high school students with professionals in different sectors to prepare them for the world of work. We are developing a virtual version of this program in partnership with all 4 school boards. While many experiential learning and networking activities aren’t available this school year, students must still be given opportunities to develop the personal and workplace skills important to their career and life planning, and we are working hard to make this happen.
We are committed to removing barriers for K-12 students, offering free programs to meet their needs and create opportunities. We need your help to make this happen. If you are using these great resources for home schooling or pod schooling, consider making a donation to ONFE. This helps us cover the fees of the JA Digital Campus so that it is free to students who may not otherwise be able to access it. A donation of $5 per student helps us cover the costs - by donating $25, you can help 5 kids access this important educational resource.
