Our programs, reach and most importantly our impact on today’s students would not be possible without the 9,500+ volunteers who partner with us each year. We need you!

Our volunteer mentors leave a lasting impression on the students they teach. In fact, 51% of alumni who experienced JA as a student have gone on to work in the industry of their JA volunteer!

Last year alone, JA volunteers donated more than 140,000 hours teaching JA programs (an estimated $3.2 million value), which enables JA to leverage all contributions to serve even more students!
