Volunteer For JA

Junior Achievement USA's 178,000 classroom volunteers come from all walks of life, including: business people, college students, parents and retirees. These dedicated individuals are the backbone of our organization. Volunteers play a key role in bringing JA to life. By sharing personal and professional experiences and skills with students in the local community, they are able to make the connection between what is learned in school and what is needed to succeed in work and in life.

All new volunteers are required to attend a one and ½ hour training session. As curriculum changes are made, returning volunteers are asked to complete a refresher course. During this session, the curriculum is reviewed and program objectives are explored. Classroom management tips are discussed as well as the teacher's role in the JA program. Volunteers receive kits, which contain everything needed to make participation in JA interactive and engaging for students. Junior Achievement of North Louisiana's Program Manager conducts the training sessions at our office or may train large volunteer groups at your facility.

Your participation helps bring the JA experience to more schools and students in our community. For as little as an hour per week, you can make a difference in the lives of young people. Your JA experience will leave you feeling proud, energized and hopeful about a better future for our young people.
