What is Junior Nutrition Academy?

The Junior Nutrition Academy (JNA) gives pre-dietetics students--and any other students with a passion for healthy living--the opportunity to teach fun, interactive nutrition lessons to children in the Provo School District during their lunch hour.

How do I get involved?


Volunteers will be accepted at the beginning of Fall and Winter Semesters. If you wish to join later in the semester, email us at byujna@byu.edu or text one of the leaders for additional volunteer opportunities within the program. During the semester, we should respond to you within 2-3 days. We will reply to emails received during Spring and Summer Terms toward the beginning of Fall Semester.

Volunteer Commitment:

Volunteers who join JNA must commit to at least one semester of teaching. Lessons are taught for 8 weeks beginning in the second month of each semester.

Training:

Please complete this mandatory 20-minute child protection training before you begin working with the children.
