JA In-Classroom Programs
About JA Weekly Classroom Programs
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.
As a JA Weekly volunteer, you will have the opportunity to work with students over a period of time and develop a more long-term rapport with them. This can be very rewarding as you build a connection with your class over the course of the program and see how they look forward to their time with you!
