Junior Achievement (JA) volunteers teach students how they can impact the world around them as individuals, workers and consumers, and prepare students to succeed in school and beyond. JA volunteers share their personal and professional experiences while facilitating a series of lessons loaded with fun, hands-on activities. Students understand and connect what they are learning in the classroom with the real world through JA lessons.

The time commitment of a JA volunteer varies; it can be a one time 45 minute visit to the school or five to seven, 45 minute visits to the classroom to teach a different JA lesson with each school visit.

We have JA high school opportunities in many Twin Cities metro communities.
