Volunteer

JA programs’ unique approach allows volunteer role models from businesses and the community to deliver our curricula while sharing their stories with students. Embodying the heart of JA, volunteer role models transform lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them that they can make a difference in the world.
