COVID-19 Important Update
Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our students, volunteers, partners, staff, and the communities we serve. Alberta schools are closed effective immediately to control the spread of COVID-19. As a result, we have made the decision to implement the following changes:
• While all In-School programs have been postponed until further notice; we are offering self-directed online programs, please click under the PROGRAMS tab.
• JA Northern Alberta encourages Company Program students to meet virtually – by phone, email, and virtual tools – just as their real-world counterparts are doing to continue business operations during this unprecedented time.
If you are a business partner, educator, or volunteer who has an event or meeting with us, you will be hearing directly from your JA team member regarding next steps. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions, concerns, or ideas.
It won’t be “business as usual” for awhile, but we are no less committed to our mission and the students we inspire – we know you are, too. Your continued support is appreciated and valued.
For more information on COVID-19 and what to do if you have symptoms, visit https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/assets/healthinfo/link/index.html, call 8-1-1 or contact your healthcare provider.
Stay safe and healthy.
Please continue to check back here for updates as the situation evolves.
