Volunteer Training & Resources
Prior to entering the classroom, you will be required to participate in program-specific training. Training may be conducted in a variety of ways, including a group setting, one-on-one, webinar, online, or even by phone.
These training sessions are important as they provide you with information about:
- 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 to the classroom
A JABC staff member will contact you to schedule your training time. Training sessions generally run from 60-90 minutes.
Your program manager will equip you with a program kit to be used in the classroom. So you are well prepared for your classroom visits, please plan additional time on your own to review the program materials.
