JA volunteers teach children how they can impact the world around them as individuals, workers and consumers, and prepare students to succeed in school and beyond. JA connects caring adults with classrooms all over Minnesota with students K-12. JA volunteers share their personal and professional experiences while facilitating a series of lessons loaded with fun, hands-on activities. Students can understand and connect what they are learning in the classroom with the real world through Junior Achievement. Time Commitment Most JA volunteers spend less than 5 total hours in a local classroom; you can choose to do all JA lessons in one morning (JA in a Day) or to schedule the five to seven, 30-45 minute lessons as separate visits (Weekly Delivery). Next Steps JA is in more than 3,500, K-12 classrooms across the Twin Cites so our ability to offer you the age group, timeframe and geographic area that you’d like to volunteer in is quite high. What part of the Twin Cites will work best for you? Do you have a preference for working with a specific age range of students?
