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 Leaders
(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.

team mentors 
(Full 5-day commitment)

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.

junior mentors 
(Full 5-day commitment)

College-aged student volunteers who can commit to serving as a junior mentor (working directly with the team mentor) for a team of 5 students. This volunteer commitment is for the full 5 days, and you will help advise and guide the students. 

All volunteers are required to go through a training with a JA® staff member.
