JFAO provides opportunities for young people age 15-29 of all backgrounds, but especially those in rural Ontario. These opportunities take on the challenge of exploring their individual talents and potential to develop personally while being involved in bettering their communities, networking, and having fun.
JFAO’s mission is “To Build Rural Leaders through personal growth, travel, experience and community betterment”.
Self-directed programs and opportunities provided by JFAO and its more than 16 affiliated clubs help to develop in members a sense of social and environmental responsibility, the ability to provide effective leadership, and an awareness of good citizenship within the community and world around them. Today JFAO is funded solely with the support of members, donors and sponsors.
Each year JF members collectively donate upwards of $80,000 to charitable projects across the province, along with countless hours of volunteer service. A provincial charity is designated each year, a list of which can be found here on our website.
