“I was in their shoes, in these same halls, where another volunteer inspired me enough to want to join the finance industry. Never in my life did I think I would actually fulfill that dream and become a stockbroker, and I definitely never imagined I’d be back in this school doing the same thing for other students. It makes my heart happy.” -Fergie Alvarez, Charles Schwab Employee & JA Volunteer
When corporate employees or community group members volunteer with Junior Achievement (JA), they help inspire our community’s youth. For 100 years, businesses have partnered with JA to prepare the next generation of leaders, because they see firsthand how their involvement makes a real difference.
Corporate volunteer partnerships of any size are welcome, with company-sponsored volunteer activities available throughout the school year. By representing your company and industry to students, employee volunteers help students discover the dignity of work through the power of example. Not only do the students and our community benefit, employees also sharpen their own skills while volunteering for JA–and they have fun while doing it!
Whether you would like your company to volunteer in a JA classroom or entire school, on one date or several dates throughout the year, JA staff will work with you to identify volunteer opportunities to help you reach your company’s goals.
Corporate Volunteering Location
JA partners with schools across the Denver Metro region, northern Colorado, Wyoming, and mountain communities. Our staff will work with you to identify a school or program that is convenient for your company volunteering event.
Corporate Volunteer Training
JA provides the curriculum, tools, and volunteer training for your group. Company employees across any of your departments are welcome! Volunteers do not need to have a background in finance in order to be a successful JA volunteer.
Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities
JA does not charge schools that participate in JA programs. Therefore, JA relies on donations and corporate sponsorships to maintain programming. Opportunities for companies to support JA include programs, events, and more. JA sponsors receive heavy marketing exposure across multiple platforms. View our list of current corporate sponsors here.
