JA’s unique program model places volunteers from the community into the classrooms where they teach our curriculum to students and share about their real-world experiences. Our programs equip today’s students with critical financial literacy, career readiness, and entrepreneurship skills that will prepare them to succeed in work and life.

More than 170,000 students in Arizona, the majority of whom come from low-income backgrounds, will receive JA programs this year, thanks to the 9,500 volunteer mentors who donate their time to empower our youth. Each of our programs is hands-on and age-appropriate for students kindergarten through high school.
