JA's COVID-19 Response

JA-NEO and #LoveLocalPtbo

Your Kids. Their Future.
Empowering Students starts today.

The COVID-19 pandemic has left many of us uncertain of what the future holds – and even less certain of how to prepare our kids for it. With 70 per cent of Canadians fearing the pandemic will have long-term effects on children, it is so easy for students to feel unprepared to graduate. All we can do is give our kids the tools they need to feel prepared for whatever comes their way – because empowering students starts today.
