Make an impact on the lives of kindergarten to 12th grade students across the USA by volunteering for JA! Volunteers can engage with students in a variety of ways. From one hour, one day visits to multi-day and multi-hour experiences we have it all. Or, consider being a judge in a local competition, a mentor at a camp, being a remote volunteer, and more. Our local JA Area staff will work with you to understand your skills, interests, and time availability and match you with the best experience available. JA also provides training and access to JA program materials and resources.

Background information:
JA is the nation's largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their futures, and make smart academic and economic choices. Junior Achievement's programs-in the core content areas of work and career readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy-ignite the spark in young people to experience and realize the opportunities and realities of work and life in the 21st century.

JA is the nonprofit leader in providing innovative, hands-on experiences. We rely on volunteers to take career and life-skills mentoring into local classrooms. Volunteer experiences range in day and time commitment - and we offer turn-key opportunities and training for all!
