Ways To Volunteer
Traditional In-ClassroomWhere: In a school classroom in our community
As a JA Traditional Volunteer, you'll be paired with a teacher in a classroom. This delivery method is an effective and popular way to show students a connection between the skills they are learning in the classroom and how they can get a more fulfilling career and life.Learn more about Traditional In-Classroom
JA In A DayWhere: In a school classroom in our community
This experience uses the same JA programs as the traditional method, but it's condensed into a single day for a high-impact experience! Perfect for the volunteer who can take just a day away from work.Learn more about JA In A Day
Your commitment could vary from a single school day to a weekly visit of one hour each for five to 10 weeks. It all depends on the grade level of the program you choose. You can choose your classroom based on a number of factors. We're flexible!
You'll next be contacted by your local JA office to set up training and give you classroom materials. Or simply find out which JA office is nearest to you and contact them directly.

Students in our community come to you! You'll give them insight into your job and give them a tour of your company so they can have an opportunity to see how work gets done. It's a really great way to show them how products are made or services are promoted.Learn more about Experience JA Job Shadow
