As the 2020-2021 academic year continues, we are looking for volunteers throughout the State of Maine to volunteer in the classroom, virtually! JA helps prepare young people, (K-12th grade), for the world of work by teaching vital information about financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship.
You have the flexibility to make your own schedule and can choose from beaming into a classroom to deliver the program or pre recording videos that will be shared with educators and students. JA provides new volunteers with training and all necessary teaching materials.
Help inspire the next generation by giving them the tools to be fiscally responsible! Our mission is to empower young people to own their economic success.
