Join a club! Sign up in P-101.
Clubs are a great way to make new friends with similar interests. They offer an opportunity to learn, work in teams, enhance your Cégep experience. As we are coping with the pandemic, many students are finding it difficult to branch out and meet new people at John Abbott, but look no further! Joining a club is one of the best ways to do just that!

The Spirit Team is John Abbott College's cheerleaders! These are trying and unpredictable times, but we are dedicated to making it a little happier for both members of the team and our community. At our semiweekly practices (Sunday on campus from 9:00-11:00 am and Wednesday on Zoom from 6:00-6:40 pm), we train like competitive cheerleaders and learn choreography, chants and jumps. Outside of our practices, we plan to volunteer in our community once a month, and if COVID doesn't worsen, we would like to plan socially distanced events for the JAC community (think Pep Rally, Movie Night, etc.). A lot is "up in the air" right now because it is hard to know what's in store for us, but what is for certain is that this club will always be a safe place to hopefully bring a smile to your face! We will be holding tryouts in October for those who are interested in joining. Follow @jac.spirit on Instagram for updates on the dates of our next tryouts!

MEDLIFE or Medicine, Education Development for Low-Income Communities Everywhere is a non-profit organization that works toward accessible healthcare and education for low-income communities in Latin-America and Africa. We are also very active in our local communities, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have very successful fundraising campaigns and are working with local organizations to provide better access to vital treatments such as flu shots. "The weekly meeting are very fun and motivating. They are an amazing way to connect with others especially during these difficult times. I was able to make friends with other first year students since it's so hard meeting people during online classes"
Smash Bros Club
Are you a certified bookworm? Do you want to meet fellow lit-lovers? Or are you simply hoping to read more? If you answered yes to at least one of these questions, then the Book Club is THE club for YOU! The first student-led Book Club is an opportunity to connect meaningfully with other students (who are just as passionate about books as you are!). Together, we will discover new books with different genres every month. Our goal is to inspire students to diversify their readings, and to have engaging discussions with each other. Gather some sweets, a cup of tea, and let's discuss books! Our online book club takes place on Teams once every two weeks, at 5:30. We're looking forward to meeting you :-) Join us on Teams: tsu3gxl Follow us on Instagram @jacbookclub !

Law and Debate Club
Through this club, we wish to connect as many students as possible in a social environment where they will find people who share their interests and inquiries on the subject of law. We want to help people choose their professional careers by providing them with the information and the help needed to succeed while having a good time during their CEGEP years. We wish to have our members participate in many debates and mock trials within and with other CEGEPs to get a feeling of what it is like to be a lawyer and to improve their public speaking and debating skills for the future. We wish for this club to become the meeting point for people who want to have discussions and debates about all sorts of topics with other people who will be open to discourse and a place where people will learn about what it is like to be an attorney.
Muslim Student Association (MSA)
Hi there! We are a chapter of Jack.org here at JAC and we are all about spreading awareness about mental health, breaking the stigma surrounding mental illness, and learning about mental wellness! If you are passionate about mental health, interested in mental health related disorders, or want to work on your mental wellness, then this is the club for you! During each virtual meeting every week, there is always a new activity that we do, whether it be learning about coping skills for stress and mental health difficulties, checking out the warning signs of someone who is struggling with their mental health, or just taking the meeting time to relax and destress using different methods! This semester, meetings are every Monday at 5:30pm on Teams (code: 1et8li0). Type in the code on Teams and you should find out group! Or, send me (Maia Zauner) a Mio with your name and I'll add you! You can reach any of the 3 leaders, Paria Namazi, Dhyana Ruiz Fuentes or myself, anytime for a non-judgmental chat! We hope to (virtually) see you soon!
At JAC VOBOC, we are a community of like-minded students who want to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients. We mainly accomplish this through various fundraising events, awareness campaigns and volunteering. This year, we are working with VOBOC (Venturing Out Beyond Cancer), an organization that shares our goals and values. This semester won't be run as usual, but we still plan on organizing fundraisers and social events to help students develop a community network through these difficult times. Additionally, we will continue to provide various volunteering opportunities with our club members. Join one of our meetings this semester and you might even get to see a special guest speaker to learn something new about the world of cancer whether that is on a biological level or on a social level.
