Provide classroom volunteers — Passionate volunteers are the cornerstone of JA. Volunteers serve as invaluable role models by helping students to understand the important part that education plays in their future success. Volunteering with JA is a fun, flexible and rewarding way for your employees to directly impact the lives of local students. JA programs are easy to teach and require a modest time investment.
Sponsor a curriculum — With a substantial donation from your organization, JA can provide proven curriculum to an entire grade level.
Sponsor an entire school — A significant contribution from your organization enables JA to provide an entire school of students with the tools they need to build their dreams.
Get involved in an event — Special events, like JA Bowl-A-Thon, JA Stock Market Challenge, Success on the Green Golf Classic and The Colorado Business Hall of Fame are perfect ways for local businesses to participate in fundraising and gain exposure among Denver’s business community.
