Want to be a
JA Volunteer in the Laredo Area?
Thank you for taking an interest in our local youth by becoming a JA Volunteer in Laredo and surrounding areas! We are always in need of volunteers from our community to help prepare and inspire students to succeed in a global economy!
Make a Difference in Your Community
By being a JA volunteer and sharing your personal and professional experiences and skills with students from your community, you help them make the connection between what they are learning in school and what they will need to succeed in work and life.
Inspire a Future Generation
For a time investment of only an hour each day in one week, you may be the difference between a young person in your community just making ends meet or getting a more fulfilling career and life.
Amazing & Rewarding Experience
JA gives you an opportunity through your employer's volunteer program (or on your own) to impact young people in your community in a positive way with simple to implement programs on financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. This will empower young people to own their economic success.
Your commitment could vary from a single school day to a weekly visit of one hour each for five to eight weeks. It all depends on the grade level of the program you choose. You can choose your classroom based on a number of factors. We're flexible!
Get Your Company Involved
Share the fun of volunteering with your co-workers! Whether you choose to carpool or co-teach a program, volunteering together is a great experience. Giving back to the community is great exposure for your company, and employees can sharpen their presentation and organization skills.
Empower Tomorrow's Leaders
All of our volunteers go through a required 1 1/2 hour training before they enter the classroom. At our volunteer training, you will learn more about JA, our programs and available classrooms for this school year. For more information, please contact Amanda Espinoza at 956.725.3464.
We make sure all our volunteers have everything they need to make the class experience memorable and effective. We have compiled JA program and JA volunteer training videos to supplement the required volunteer training. You will also find downloadable program certificates, if needed!
