Become a Volunteer

Be A Role Model

All JA™ programs are taught by trained professionals who bring the lessons to life using their personal and professional experiences. JA’s proven turn-key programs provide students with experiential leaning in a classroom setting.

Helping young people develop life skills, observing “ah ha!” moments of discovery, and showing them the relevance of school to their lives is inspiring work. Knowing that you have made a difference in a child’s life is a satisfying feeling. We provide volunteers with everything needed to succeed, including training, materials, and lesson plan.

As a JA volunteer, I see how this program gives students the opportunity to explore important business concepts. I am always impressed with the activities and the way the activities tie in important business concepts in a fun and meaningful way. It is very rewarding to see the students learn, and it is exciting to see their enthusiasm for the program and activities.
