Host On-Site Training
By focusing on education, economic and youth development, JA programs contribute to the vitality of our community and the availability of a well-educated workforce. As an Impact Partner, your investment in Junior Achievement will provide a visible and meaningful demonstration of your organization's commitment to ensuring our youth are prepared for college and a career.
By mentoring students with Junior Achievement you will be able to share your professional insights combined with a JA curriculum to inspire and prepare students. We need your help to meet the request for our programs from Idaho teachers.
How do I get started?
STEP 1: Get employees to sign-up as JA Mentors
Print this sign-up sheet and post it in your office area.
STEP 2: Notify employees of the exciting Mentor opportunity
Send out a company-wide email to all employees informing them of the opportunity to get involved in order to recruit participants.
STEP 3: Schedule an on-site training
Is an on-site training right for you?
If there are 3 or more people interested in becoming a Mentor for JA in your workplace and it's difficult for all of you to leave the office at once and it would be easier if we came to you.
If your group can make it to a training session at our office, sign-up for a training session here.
