This year, Junior Achievement will impact the lives of over 66,000 young people in Greater Washington through volunteers like you. We will give these kids the tools to be financially capable, the skills to be ready for the world of work, and the inspiration to think with an entrepreneurial mind. But we cannot do it without your help.
Explore our current volunteer needs and contact us to discuss. You are our heroes.
JA Finance Park Volunteer Needs
One day, these students will lead. But first, they will practice within the walls of JA Finance Park. Students travel to JA Finance Park where they leave behind their lives as students and receive a tablet computer with a life scenario that includes a career, family situation, salary, credit score, and other information. Volunteers help students with their decisions and share their own life experiences to give the choices context and make the experience more authentic for these young people.

Build a bridge from the classroom to the future for our region's young people by serving as an in-classroom JA® volunteer. We provide the training and curriculum.
