WHY BECOME A JA CLASSROOM VOLUNTEER?
Volunteers play a key role in bringing Junior Achievement to life. By sharing your peronsal and professional experiences and skills with students from your community, you help them make the connection between what they learn in school and what they will need to succeed in work and life.
Junior Achievement makes volunteering fun, fulfilling, and offers flexible scheduling options. Our curriculum provides everything you need to make participation in JA interactive and engaging for students.
For as little as an hour a week, you can make a difference in the lives of young people in your community. Your Junior Achievement experience will leave you feeling proud, energized, and hopeful about a brighter future.
Even the busiest professional can find time to make a difference with JA!
