Get Involved :: Volunteers

It happens again and again. Someone volunteers with JA, and he or she is so surprised at how rewarding the experience is. Maybe you help a young girl realise that she might use math in the job she wants to do every day. Or you might help a disadvantaged student discover that going to university can be a reality. However you help, you’ll soon discover that pushing a young person to reach for his or her dreams is just as satisfying as realising your own. Better yet, JA makes volunteering easy with age-appropriate curriculum using real-world lessons about entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness.


  • A want versus a need.
  • A career versus a job.
  • How to maintain a monthly budget.
  • How to create a resume.

Don’t you wish that someone had thought you those things when you were growing up?


Now there is someone. YOU! Volunteers embody the heart of Junior Achievement. They bring a message of opportunity and economic understanding to classrooms. No matter what your profession, YOU can carry that message to children and change their lives forever.


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 taking chances and shooting for the stars.
