Junior Achievement of Greater Washington empowers young people to own their economic success. Our volunteers have the opportunity to make a significant impact in the key content areas of entrepreneurship, work readiness, and financial literacy.
JA offers programs for students in kindergarten through 12th grade in DC, Northern Virginia and Maryland. Students that are impacted through JA are our future professionals, entrepreneurs, leaders and work force.
Programs are traditionally presented by JA volunteers for 30-45 minutes once a week for five to seven weeks, with the exact time commitments dependent upon the grade level of the students. JA volunteers can also participate in a single high impact event called "JA in a Day," in which all the lessons are taught on one day.
Junior Achievement volunteers will receive ongoing support from the JA staff throughout the program and new Volunteers attend a 90 minute training session. The training session prepares volunteers with classroom management techniques and how to successfully impact students in the classroomTo learn more or volunteer, please visit www.myJA.org/volunteers/.
