What is Junior Achievement?

Junior Achievement aims to empower children by equipping them with essential life skills that extend beyond traditional classroom education. Through our programs, young participants are guided in mastering crucial abilities, including financial management, career readiness, and active community engagement. By instilling these skills early on, we lay the groundwork for their future success, fostering a generation of confident, capable individuals prepared to thrive in an ever-evolving world.


How do I get involved?


Volunteer Description: Volunteers will be group leaders for kids at their activities.

Volunteer Commitment: There is no commitment to work with this program.

Step 1:

Email the executive director at and express your interest in joining the program.

Step 2:

Please complete this mandatory 25-minute Minor Protection Training before you begin working with the children.


Volunteer Leader Description: There are two kinds of leadership positions: Executive Director and Program Director. A program only has one Executive Director, but multiple program directors. Leaders are generally responsible for overseeing recruitment, retention, and reflection with volunteers. They also coordinate service with community partners and ensure their program runs smoothly. Volunteer leaders may also share the responsibilities of volunteers as outlined in the Volunteer Description. For more information, visit our section called Be a Leader!

Volunteer Leader Commitment: In addition to volunteering, Volunteer leaders commit to a 1-hour monthly team meeting to discuss needs and make plans for the program.
