Your Experience. Your Skills. His Future.
Volunteers embody the heart of Junior Achievement. You play a key role in bringing Junior Achievement to life. By sharing your personal and professional experiences and skills with students from your community — your future employees or customers — you help them make the connection between what they are learning in school and what they will need to succeed in work and in life.
Can you give one hour per week for 5-7 weeks?
Or just one day for 3-4 hours?
Choose the location, grade, day and time that’s best for you.
We provide everything you need to make participation in JA interactive and engaging for students.
You will leave feeling proud, energized, and hopeful about your role in creating a better future for our young people.
