January is JA Alumni Month. Tell Us Your Story!

To commemorate the JA Centennial, JA Worldwide has launched “I am JA” profiles of alumni who are serving social needs, creating local jobs, or otherwise improving the world around them.

Here in British Columbia, we know that there are thousands of JABC Alumni who are also improving the world around them.  We want to hear from you!

Check out some great videos of Canadian JA Alumni:
