VOLUNTEERS: The Heart of Junior Achievement

JA volunteers are local business professionals who share their knowledge and experiences with students in a JA program. Are you ready for this rewarding challenge?

JA volunteers are generous, talented and inspiring. They come from a variety of backgrounds and share one common goal: to educate students and inspire them to achieve their highest potential.

Our volunteers come from the business community, either individually or through their organizations’ JA volunteer programs and generously donate their time to help prepare Canadian youth for the future.

Why Volunteer with JA?

Our volunteers constantly tell us that teaching JA programs is an incredibly rewarding experience.

In addition to positively impacting and inspiring young people, volunteering with JA is a professional development opportunity where your leadership, mentorship and public speaking skills are utilized. JA provides the program materials, training and support to make your experience fun, meaningful and easy to deliver.
