Program Training

Prior to volunteering in a classroom (either in person or virtually), please join other JABC Volunteers and B.C. Educators for live training via Zoom. Simply select your JA Program below, pick one of the scheduled training sessions 1-2 weeks before your volunteer date and click to register!

Important: You must be a registered JABC volunteer before you sign up for program training. Not yet registered in our system? Just go to our New Volunteer Registration page to create an account!

Training Dates

Please only sign up for one session at a time. Once registered, you will receive a Zoom confirmation email and your JABC Program trainer will be in touch with further details.

These training sessions run for 90 minutes. The content focuses on delivering each specific JA program, not on volunteering in a virtual setting.

To schedule training, please contact Jason.Ranchoux@jabc.org

Program training sessions are important as they provide you with info 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

So you are well prepared for your sessions, please plan additional time on your own to review the program materials.

Also please consider health & safety. Take a moment to view this important WorkSafeBC video about working from home.

If you have any additional questions, please contact a member of our Program Team.
