What Your Donation Provides
- $1,000 – Achievement is priceless, but if we were to put a value on it, your gift of $1,000 will recruit, train and place a volunteer in a classroom, pay for the curriculum materials and staff support, and fund the costs of measuring impact.
- $350 – High School Heroes are JA New York's youth volunteer corps, delivering JA programming to our hard-to-reach outer borough communities and serving as powerful role models for young children. They exemplify the importance of staying in school, civic involvement, and community engagement. Be a material provider to a JA New York High School Hero student by underwriting the costs of their program materials, transportation, and training.
- $250 – Your involvement will recruit, train and support a corporate or community volunteer to teach students how to navigate successfully through school and life.
- $100 – Purchase a JA Program Kit for a NYC, Long Island or Lower Hudson Valley classroom. One kit – in the form of a nifty little briefcase – provides interactive lesson plans and engaging teaching materials for one classroom of 24 to 32 students.
- $50 – Help a student discover their career path with a JA Job Shadow experience. Through a one-day, on-site orientation, a local student will receive an authentic work experience.
