Volunteer - Volunteer Commitment
Volunteer Time Commitment Chart
Junior Achievement is passionate people inspiring kids to learn the economics of life through free enterprise education. JA enables caring adults to share their experience with students to show them what it takes to be successful.
Junior Achievement volunteers bring a real world perspective to the youth in our community. As a Classroom Volunteer, you will lead discussions and activities to encourage the understanding of teamwork and leadership in your class.
What other responsibilities does a JA volunteer have?
Volunteers must agree to sign, and abide by, Junior Achievement's Volunteer Conduct Policy. They must also participate in a 2-hour training orientation prior to beginning the program and be available to work with students during the normal school day. Classroom Volunteers follow lesson plans developed by JA, but their greatest contribution is the sharing of their life experiences with the students.
