Prior to entering the classroom, you will be required to participate in program-specific training. Training may be conducted in a group setting, one-on-one, via webinar, online, or by telephone.
These training sessions are important as they provide you with information regarding:
- Your role as a volunteer
- The host teacher’s role
- What to expect from and how to connect with the students
- An overview of the lessons
- How to facilitate the activities – tips and techniques
- Materials you will bring with you to the classroom
JABC staff will contact you to schedule your training and to equip you with a complete kit of program materials to bring into the classroom. Training sessions are generally 60-90 minutes. You should plan additional time on your own to read the program thoroughly and prepare for your visits. JABC staff are available to respond to your questions and provide support along the way.
