About

We have high school educators seeking individual volunteers to share their business expertise with students! Our dynamic, hands-on high school programs are delivered by volunteer mentors in the business community. We believe that to give students the vision to excel in the future, they need to see real role models up close! Our programs center around entrepreneurship, financial literacy, and career readiness. Whether you own a small business or work for a corporation, we would love to hear from you!

Our high school programs are delivered using scripted materials, which engage students in active discussion around real-world topics. Time commitment for an individual class is 7 weeks, 45 minutes per week.

JA staff will provide one-on-one training on the program, deliver a kit of materials, and connect you to an interested local educator.
