How it Works?


How It Works

1. Two PATHS To Volunteer

JA partners with organizations that provide monetary support to help deliver JA programs and to develop other partnership efforts. These organizations also provide their employee base to be volunteers in the classroom to deliver JA programming

— OR —

Individuals in our community can reach out directly to our JA team to set-up a time to volunteer in the classroom or virtually.

2. Choose Your Schedule

Whichever way you choose to get involved with JA, your JA Program Manager will coordinate schedules with you and a classroom teacher. They will also provide you with a short but effective training session and will make sure you are completely ready for your amazing experience!

3. During the Visit

Your commitment could vary from a single school day to a weekly visit of one hour each for 5 to 10 weeks. It all depends on the grade level of the program you choose. You can choose your classroom based on a number of factors. We're flexible!

4. Congratulations!

Students love the hands-on learning opportunities that JA programs provide. You as a  JA volunteer are a critical component in the success of JA programs and sharing your professional or personal experiences helps make JA program content real! JA teaches students how they can achieve their dreams!  

Make A Difference In YOUR Community

By being a JA volunteer and sharing your personal and professional experiences and skills with students from your community, you help them make the connection between what they are learning in school and what they will need to succeed in work and life.

Inspire a Future Generation

For a time investment of only an hour each day in one week, you may be the difference between a young person in your community just making ends meet or getting a more fulfilling career and life.

JA provides an Amazing and Rewarding Volunteer Experience

JA gives you an opportunity through your employer's volunteer program (or on your own) to impact young people in your community in a positive way with simple to implement programs on financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. This will empower young people to own their economic success.
