Volunteers:

Overview & Time Commitment

 

JA 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 also agree to sign, and abide by, Junior Achievement's Volunteer

Code of  Conduct Policy. They must also participate in a 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.
