When and How You Can Get Started Volunteering

Each JA volunteer receives training to prepare for their classroom experience, including orientation time with their specific JA program kit. Training takes approximately one hour and is held at the JA office. Please call our Junior Achievement office at 702-214-0500 for more information on our next training session.

Junior Achievement provides the keys to your success: the training, the curriculum, and a classroom ready to meet you. All you need is your enthusiasm, your life experience, and a willingness to teach children about how you took chances.

Please note that training sessions may be cancelled if no volunteers have registered at least 24 hours in advance

If you would like to find out when our next training sessions are happening; please contact Jasmine Moniz at jasmine.moniz@ja.org or 702-214-0504.
