·January Open Dates: 1/9/17, 1/10/17, 1/18/17, 1/25/17, 1/31/17 (We have open dates all the way through June. Please contact Lene for other dates (lmccollum@jamaryland.org).

·Volunteers will enable JA to support approximately 8,900 4th-6th grade students from the the 12 Central Maryland counties.

Volunteers serve as a mentor/coach to a small group of 6-8 students as they operate a real business for the day, encouraging students to communicate and collaborate with one another, while thinking critically and getting creative. Volunteers provide those "ah ha" moments daily as they help students discover the value of themselves, their education, and their future beyond the classroom. Through the experience, volunteers will develop their own communication skills and learning how to effectively manage a team.
