Transform the Lives of Youth in Your Community

Dedicated volunteers are at the core of JA’s impact on Canadian youth.

JA volunteers are generous, talented and inspiring. They come from a variety of business areas and share one common goal:

educating students and inspiring them to achieve their highest potential.

Our volunteers include individuals, as well as professionals who sign up through their organizations’ JA volunteer programs. Volunteers from organizations such as TDRBC, Economical Insurance, HSBC and GE generously donate their time to help prepare Canadian youth for the future.

Our dedicated volunteers teach grade 3-12 students about financial literacy, workplace readiness and entrepreneurship. Topics include how to prepare a budget, workplace communications skills and launching a successful business. JA provides training, support and program materials to ensure volunteers have a fun and meaningful experience.
