Have you paid a bill or had a job? If so, then Junior Achievement (JA) is a fun way to have a significant impact on Georgia’s youth. JA volunteers come from all walks of life, such as business professionals, community groups, college students and parents. They are passionate about preparing Georgia’s students to thrive in today’s global economy while connecting together the greater Atlanta education and business worlds.
Particularly with businesses volunteer groups, we can also brainstorm additional ways, during your volunteer day, to make the time more relevant to your work goals, such as:
Co-Client Meetings - volunteer for a day alongside business clients to build relationships, with the option to have a meeting in one of our office spaces or local Atlanta entertainment spots (Hawks game, Falcons game, concert, happy hours, dinner)
Professional Development - volunteer for a day with your new hires, as a part of your onboarding process, to help emphasize company skills and values.
Career Development - volunteer for a day with your Employee Resource Network groups, e.g. young professionals in your business, to begin discussions of employee development plans alongside business leaders.
Teambuilding - volunteer for a day with your department or team and use the space at the JA Discovery Center to develop team building exercises and/or hold team event in the local area.
