Make an impact on the lives of kindergarten to 12th grade students across the USA by virtually volunteering for JA! Volunteers can engage with students in a variety of ways.
Virtual Options include remote live opportunities where volunteers can "beam-in" to an in-person, face-to- face classroom where students are in a classroom with their teacher but when guests aren't allowed in OR volunteers can beam-in to a remote classroom when the students and teacher are all off-site/at home connecting remotely. As a remote live volunteer, you can choose several options. Volunteers can deliver a full JA program, parts of the program, share information about your career, participate in panel, or explore several other options!
Volunteers also have the option to submit pre-recorded videos of JA program content or career information.
Our local JA Area staff will work with you to understand your skills, interests, and time availability and match you with the best virtual experience available. JA also provides virtual and self-guided training and access to JA program materials and resources.
