Volunteer with us in the McGrath Family JA BizTown!

Volunteers serve as our conduit between the real world and what is being taught in the classroom. They take the concepts the students learn in the classroom and show how they impact their future lives in our local and global community.

Volunteer Opportunities In JA BizTown

  • Volunteer Registration Form
  • There are several schools that participate in the program and are unable to recruit enough volunteers to support them on their visit day, due to to transportation issues and/or work conflicts. We cannot run the JA BizTown simulation without volunteers to supervise and assist the students, and by volunteering, you are making it possible for our high need schools to participate in the program.  
  • As a volunteer, you will be assigned to one of the 21 different businesses in the McGrath Family JA BizTown, where you will assist the students in managing business meetings, completing their job duties for the day, and help them to stay on task and focus on their business  and personal goals.
  • The total time committment is 6 hours, which includes an 1.5 hr training the morning of before the students arrive, where we will go over what to expect and how to make the day successful for you as well as the students. During the day, you will receive a volunteer binder, with helpful checklists, FAQs, and troubleshooting tips.
