Make an exciting difference in the future of young students by teaching them skills they can use in any job setting! You can inspire young people to experience the realities and opportunities of our ever-changing workforce and how to think critically about their futures. JA, the nonprofit leader in providing innovative financial literacy, work-readiness, and entrepreneurship education, needs volunteers to take career- and life-skills mentoring into local classrooms.

We’re specifically looking for volunteers to teach classrooms 1 lesson for 5 weeks. Each lesson is about 45 minutes long. All teaching materials and curriculum are provided. We’re very flexible with your schedules! You and your assigned teacher set up what times work for you best. For example, if you prefer to only teach the classroom twice, you can teach 3 lessons one day and 2 the other!

Requires minimal prep time. It is not necessary that your career is in education or business. We welcome all careers! Less than 1 hour training is required. May be completed over the phone.
