Virtual Volunteer draft

 

Rewarding for you. Life-changing for them.

JA volunteers inspire and prepare students to succeed in school and in life. By sharing your energy and experiences, you serve as a role model to help them envision a successful future.

In response to the COVID-19 guidelines, Junior Achievement quickly adapted so that volunteers can engage with students in their virtual learning environment. Now is a perfect time for JA to connect with our young people via technology, allowing them to keep learning and planning for their future. We’re seeking volunteers to introduce middle and high school students to different career pathways. Share your personal and professional experiences by creating a simple smartphone video to help young people explore future careers. We’re grateful for your interest in sharing your time, talent, and energy to keep our children engaged, inspired, and educationally challenged in this new virtual reality.
