During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Junior Achievement is looking for companies that encourage volunteerism in their workplace. JA Programs work with and train volunteers to go into classrooms, K-12, to guide students through one of our programs by helping them to understand the importance of education and business; to encourage students to stay in school; and to stimulate interest in careers and business with hands on activities. The time involved is typically one hour per week for 5 to 8 weeks in the classroom with the teacher as a facilitator. The lessons and all materials are provided. The Team Building benefits of a group of employees is a very effective and rewarding way to help your local community.
JA BizTown Mobile Volunteers:
After up to 16 hours of in-class curriculum, students put their new knowledge to the test during a culminating simulation. As a volunteer, you will guide students as they become adults for a day, running JA BizTown as its consumers and citizens, with job duties and bank accounts to manage. One volunteer per storefront (9-11) is ideal.
