Role of a JA Volunteer

Qualified volunteers, in partnership with educators, enter the classroom to teach Junior Achievement programs. In the process of delivering these programs, they help to shape the future career paths of students. JA volunteers act as positive role models and mentors by sharing personal knowledge and experience. They strive to enhance the personal growth of students through experiential learning and they demonstrate values such as:

  • Integrity (honesty, reliability, and ethical behaviour)
  • Mutual Respect (treat all individuals with respect and dignity)
  • Quality (strive for excellence and improvement)
  • Business Ethics (observe the standards and policies of the business, education and Junior Achievement communities)
  • Volunteerism (commit the time required to deliver Junior Achievement programs)

  • Why Volunteer?

Being part of Junior Achievement is a fulfilling volunteer experience and a unique way to achieve personal career objectives. Junior Achievement volunteers:

  • - Gain a significant sense of satisfaction and accomplishment from mentoring students and contributing to their skills development  
  • - Develop and improve useful life and business skills that are transferable to both professional and social environments, including leadership, facilitation and problem solving
  • - Discover opportunities to network within the business, education, and JA communities


The staff of JA South Western Ontario would like to recognize our current volunteers for the 2015-16 program year!
