We Make it as Easy as Possible!
Your commitment could vary from a single school day to a weekly visit of one hour each for five 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!
You'll next be contacted by your local JA office to set up training and give you classroom materials. Or simply find out which JA office is nearest you and contact them directly.
