JA In A Day

A complete day of JA Education


What is JA in a Day?

JA in a Day is a high impact way to deliver JA's lessons for a particular grade level all on the same day. Some schools choose to have every grade receive JA programming on the same day. "JA in a Day" is a unique opportunity as it offers volunteers a great opportunity to get involved with Junior Achievement without juggling schedule conflicts or long-term commitments.  

What Do Volunteers Do?  

The volunteers participate in a training session (on-site at your location or at our office) prior to the event where they will obtain their classroom materials and teacher assignments. On the day of the event, volunteers conduct the lessons in the assigned classrooms. 

What Is the Role of the Teacher?

During the event, teachers are present in the classroom at all times to partner with the volunteers, help maintain discipline and answer any of the volunteer's questions.

What Is JA Staff's Role?

JA staff plans and coordinates the day and is at the school to help if needed.

What Is My Time Commitment?

Usually 4.5 hours. Volunteers arrive at the school around 8:30-9:00 a.m. and begin lessons. Typically, volunteers are done between 1 and 2 p.m.
