About

Volunteer with Junior Achievement as we help equip students in grades K-8 with the tools they need to succeed in their future. Junior Achievement has many free programs that are delivered to students from volunteers in corporations and in the community. Take this chance to make an impact on students with limited resources and not enough civic engagement from members in the community!

  • Programs consist of 5 sessions that will be delivered during ONE DAY in a classroom for 3-4 hours. This is called a JA in a Day!
  • Sessions are interactive and activity based - not lecture style!
  • All training and materials are provided to volunteers in advance by a Junior Achievement manager.
  • Programs come with guidebooks for volunteers to follow throughout the lessons.
  • Requires no prior research...just a little prep time for each session in advance of the event!
  • The teacher remains in the classroom at all times and will help facilitate activities!

THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU IF:
  • You have a background in business; management; planning; finance; entrepreneurship, marketing; have an all around good knowledge of the business world and can relate to students
  • You are a High School student or College student in need of community service hours

  • You are a part of an organization looking for a Group Volunteer Activity
