Congratulations on your decision to become a #JAHero JA Finance Park® Volunteer! On the day of your volunteer event, you will arrive 1 hour before students to take part in an on-site training that will empower you to guide students through the JA Finance Park simulation. These materials do not take the place of your in-person training.

Keep in mind: before students arrive, they will have taken part in 14-hours of in-classroom curriculum designed to give them the tools they need to be successful at JA Finance Park. Your role is to bring their experience to life, sharing your own life and career experiences as they explore the facility, research budget line items, and understand the connection between education, careers, and the choices they make to their future success. 

Our volunteer training and binder are a resource designed to guide your efforts throughout each phase of the simulation. There will be announcements to further assist you with supporting the students throughout the day at JA Finance Park.
