Annual Report 2020-21The last 18+ months have tested everyone’s resiliency and adaptability to our changing educational landscape due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Educators, students and parents continually shift with school closures to virtual learning then in-school learning with hybrid educational models. Flexible learning modes have become commonplace as schools pivot to deliver quality education during the pandemic. At Junior Achievement of Maine, we are proud of our own resiliency and adaptability during these times. This year, our volunteers are back in the classroom AND we continue to build virtual learning experiences for the students of Maine.
