JA In-Classroom Programs
About JA Traditional Classroom Programs
What is the role of the volunteer?
Volunteers are critical to the success of our programs and JA volunteers can impact a large number of students in a short span of time. As a volunteer, you will inspire and prepare young people for their futures and help youth avoid the financial pitfalls so many adults currently face. During each lesson, volunteers will lead the classroom through assigned activities and share their experiences with the students.

What is the role of the teacher?
During the event, teachers are present in the classroom at all times to partner with the volunteers, help maintain discipline and answer any of the volunteer's questions.
What is the role of JA Staff?
JA staff will match volunteers with teachers based on location and availability. JA staff will also help communicate necessary information to both the volunteer and the teacher through the duration of the program.
