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 programs offer students in grades 4-12 the opportunity to learn financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness skills via engaging programs and with the help of dedicated volunteers.

JA provides the program materials, training and support to make your experience fun, meaningful and easy to deliver. Most of our programs are 4 hours in length and are happening across the province from September to June. Please have a look at our current provincial opportunites: https://jabc-community.org/page-with-custom-part/volunteer-opportunities-v2

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering lets you enhance your skills, share your interests, inspire youth, meet new people and give back to the community.

Time commitments vary from half-day to multiple one-hour visits over several weeks. Volunteer opportunities are available around the province, in cities and small communities. Your Program Manager will coordinate a schedule between you and a classroom teacher. You can choose your classroom based on a number of factors. We’re flexible.

We are looking for volunteers who:

  • Have business knowledge and experience
  • Have a good command of the English language
  • Feel comfortable presenting information and ideas to a class of students
  • Enjoy working with and mentoring young people
  • Are patient, flexible, organized and engaging
  • Available during school hours, Monday-Friday, 8-4pm

JA programs are fun, hands-on and can transform a young person’s life.  Volunteer with JABC! https://jabc.ca/volunteer/
