IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE

Well, what a year 2020 has been! We are balancing the impact of a global pandemic with the critical need for our youth to continue their learning. In developing plans to start the 2020-2021 Cane Quest season, we have focused on strategies that allow youth to return to participating in our programs while prioritizing the health and wellness of all involved.

BIA had to switch up the way that we offer programs, so by offering in-person and virtual program options, we are providing you, our regional partners, a choice that allows you to deliver high-quality programming in formats which will best meet your specific needs.

Cane Quest Regionals Modified Program Delivery:

Each Cane Quest Regional is unique and has unique needs. In the Cane Quest Pandemic Supplemental Handbook 2021, we have provided various options for program delivery to accommodate a wide range of needs. There are modified in-person options as well as virtual. We encourage you to have your Cane Quest program anytime between October 1, 2020 through April 1, 2021.

For any in-person programming options, please adhere to the recommended safety guidelines.

Regionals will still be provided with the support you are used to from us. We will be distributing a more simplified version of the collateral order form/ regional permission form.

Thank you for supporting this program. We appreciate your patience in understanding that this a rapidly evolving situation, and we are doing our best to monitor the situation and make decisions based on facts and recommendations from state and federal officials. As things evolve, we will continue to communicate updates and necessary changes to you, our regional partners. If you have specific questions/concerns, please email us and we will respond as quickly as we can.
