The JA® Entrepreneurship Summit will combine interactive, hands-on workshops with unstructured team time in which students will work with volunteers from the business world to develop their solutions to a presented problem. The students will be working towards a solution they will pitch at the end of the five days. We are looking for two types of volunteers:
Workshop Volunteers (Specific Area of Expertise)
Volunteers to commit to one specific session or topic during the 5-day Summit that they are an expert in (i.e., marketing, branding, design thinking, public speaking). Please see the schedule available at the bottom of the learn more page for a draft schedule of workshops.
Adviser volunteers (Full 5-day commitment to act as mentor to team)
Volunteers who can commit to be an adult adviser and mentor for a team of 5 students. This volunteer commitment is for the full 5 days, and you will act as a resource and mentor for your team.
All volunteers are required to go through a training with a JA® staff member.
