Why Volunteer?

Volunteers are critical to the success of our programs and JA volunteers have the opportunity to 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.

What is my time commitment?

  • Orientation & training session
    60-90 minutes
  • Preparation at home
    30-60 minutes for each lesson
  • Elementary School Programs
    5 sessions, 30-45 minutes each
  • Middle School Programs

  • High School Programs

What is provided to me?

JA provides you with turnkey materials necessary to teach your class, including a comprehensive volunteer lesson plan guide, engaging activity materials, and fun posters. JA will train you on how to use the materials provided to you, and will connect you to a teacher in your area who has requested JA programs.

You and the teacher are then provided the flexibility to determine your visitation schedule. The teacher will remain in the classroom to support you throughout the sessions. 

You will also have a JA contact who can answer any questions you have, and provide any assistance you may need.
