JA is a Volunteer-delivered, K-12 program that:

  • empowers young people to own their economic success.
  • shows them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace.
  • fosters work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills
  •  uses experiential learning to inspire kids to dream big and reach their potential.
  •  teaches students to develop the skills they need to experience the realities and opportunities of work and entrepreneurship in the 21st-century global marketplace.
  •  helps young people connect with relevant learning and the importance of staying in school.
  •  inspires students to develop competitive skills and confidence.

What You need to do as a JA volunteer:

  • Attend one JA Orientation Meeting (only once, EVER)
  • Pick up the FULLY DEVELOPED kit that has the curriculum written out and all the materials you need.  You DO NOT need to research, write, or buy ANYTHING on your own!!!
  • Present (5) 20-30 minute sessions to the students (You schedule these with the classroom teacher so it can be flexible with your schedule)
