You'll be in an actual simulated city! You'll help guide students through their assigned family scenario where they will visit many different businesses. They must purchase items to meet the needs of their family, such as insurance, clothing, transportation, housing, groceries, and childcare—without spending more than they earn.Learn More
JA partners with organizations that provide monetary support to help deliver JA programs and to develop other partnership efforts. These organizations also provide their employee base to be volunteers in the classroom to deliver JA programming.

Whichever way you get to JA, your JA Program Manager will coordinate schedules with you and a classroom teacher. They will also provide you with a short but effective training session and will make sure you are completely ready for your amazing experience!
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
Students love the hands-on learning opportunities that JA programs provide. The JA volunteer is the critical component in the success of JA programs, and sharing their professional or personal experiences that align with JA program content helps students see how JA can help them achieve their dreams!
