• Volunteers

    Volunteer 4JA volunteers come from all walks of life. But they all have a common vision: sharing a message of hope and opportunity with each and every young person they reach.

    Through volunteer partnerships from organizations large and small, or individuals interested in sharing their experiences with the children of their community, JA’s classroom volunteers inspire, prepare and empower. They band together to teach the importance of workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy.

    JA volunteers believe they can make a difference – and teach more than 125,000 students a year that they can make a difference, too.

    Why Volunteer?

    • Keep kids in school and help them achieve their dreams.
    • Be on the front line of changing current statistics regarding America’s competitiveness. Experience those “ah-ha” moments when one of your students grasps a new concept.
    • Connect with your community, and learn about the challenges and successes local
      schools face.
    • Sharpen your presentation and coaching skills.
    • Represent your company and industry to students.
    • JA makes volunteering easy with age-appropriate curriculum using real-world lessons about entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness.
