Want to be a

JA Volunteer in the

San Antonio Area?

A want versus a need. How to balance a checkbook. Don't you wish that someone had taught you those things as you were growing up? Now there is someone. YOU. All we need is your enthusiasm, life experience, and a willingness to teach children about how you took chances and shot for the stars. Junior Achievement provides the training, curriculum, and a classroom ready to meet you!

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.

Volunteer Commitment

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

Volunteer Training

All of our volunteers go through a required 1 1/2 hour training before they enter the classroom.  At the training, you will learn more about JA, our programs and available classrooms for this school year.  Trainings take place at the JA office. Fill out the Sign Up Form below to RSVP!

Volunteer Tools

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!
