English pilot project
Thanks to a financial contribution from the Burrough of Verdun as well as the Ministry of Education (MEES Quebec) JAME has launched a pilot project with the two English elementary schools in Verdun (Verdun Elementary and Rivervieiw). We are now recruiting and training English language volunteers who will be paired with children aged 5 to 10 referred to JAME by the schools. Volunteers will then work individually with the child for an hour each week in the child’s home. When JAME was founded in 1991, the organization worked with both English and French schools but the funding ended with the restructuring of the school commissions in 1998. We are thrilled to reinstate the English language programme with this new financial support.
