• What To Expect

    Going back to school was never so easy.

    Volunteering for JA certainly doesn’t require an advanced degree or even teaching experience. We provide you with easy-to-use teaching materials and training which takes approximately 90 minutes and covers topics such as managing a classroom, integrating your personal and professional experience into lessons, and presentation skills. Weekly training sessions are held in convenient locations around the metro area or at your company.

    Required for all volunteers, the training consists of:

    • Overview/history of JA
    • Arranging a planning session with your teacher
    • Explanation of your materials provided in our kit
    • Teaching tips like providing positive feedback, how to engage students in discussions and deeper thought, focusing on the learning goal and much more

    Online Training

    We highly recommend that all volunteers attend their scheduled, in-person training session facilitated by our staff. If that’s not possible, you can participate in the JA-in-a-Day program, our online training. Just click on the appropriate video — elementary or middle school. Each runs 45 minutes and covers pertinent information for volunteers.
