Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Junior Achievement’s purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.
Since 1949, Junior Achievement (JA) of Georgia has inspired and prepared young people to succeed in a global economy. We bring the education and business communities together to invest in Atlanta's students and our future work-force.
Two ways to get involved:
JA BizTown or JA Finance Park: In a one day visit to JA BizTown or JA Finance Park, volunteers guide students as they progress through the interactive simulation to either help students run a business (JA BizTown) or help students budget as an adult for the day (JA Finance Park). JA BizTown and JA Finance Park provides 6th & 7th grade students with authentic and innovative learning experiences that promote financial literacy and career readiness.
There is no prior training or experience required, except volunteers must be 18 years or older. We now have two locations:
- Junior Achievement's Chick-fil-A Foudnation Discovery Center located in downtown Atlanta or
- Junior Achievement's Discovery Center at Gwinnett located in Lawrenceville.
JA Fellows is an 18-week after-school program that provides 9th-12th grade students an opportunity to experience the world of business. This 'learn by doing’ program allows students to work in teams to conceptualize, capitalize and manage a business. Volunteers work in groups of five to facilitate meetings and provide insight along the way. Volunteers will be trained prior to starting and given all materials needed.
We hope you will get involved and help us empower young people to own their economic success!
