Volunteer Opportunities!

This year volunteers will be paired with a class for a 30-min drop-in session where volunteers video call with the students to share their personal stories and experiences about their educational and career path. Volunteers will answer students' questions around the JA program content which focuses on financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship and help students connect the material to real world situations through personal stories and anecdotes.

Please review our program descriptions and select which program(s) interest you. We will be in contact when we have opportunities available for those programs and will connect you with the classroom teacher for the two of you to deteremine a date, time and platform for your drop-in session.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we navigate these uncertain times.
