We are Service Enterprise Certified!

Posted in: JA Team, Volunteers

We are proud to announce that Junior Achievement of Arizona is Service Enterprise Certified! Thank you to the more than 9,000 volunteers directly impact AZ students. You are the magic behind our mission. And, because of you, we are better able to leverage our financial resources to serve more students!

Service Enterprise Initiative is a national initiative led by Points of Light, designed to signifying an organization’s commitment to and proficiency in appropriately leveraging the time and skills of volunteers to meet the social mission of the organization. The Arizona Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family partners with Points of Light to facilitate the network of Service Enterprise certified organizations around the state.

“Nonprofits that operate as Service Enterprises more effectively address community needs and run on almost half the median budget than those nonprofits that do not leverage volunteers across all levels of the their organization. When an organization leverages volunteers, managing them effectively, it is in a better position to grow.”
