   About the Position

Impact Statement
JA programs enable youth to develop critical life skills, reach their highest potential and achieve success. These programs develop future business and community leaders. Youth will be more likely to seek post secondary education, get better jobs, and create economic prosperity.

Partnered with a team of volunteers, a JA Company Program Volunteer becomes an advisor, role model, and facilitator for a group of 10-15 high school students. You will help foster their entrepreneurial spirit and support them through an 18-week entrepreneurial journey in which students create, run, and liquidate a real start-up business.

Company Program begins the week of Nov. 15 and runs for 18 weekly sessions. You choose to commit to Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday evenings with the program running from 6:00-8:00pm. Training will be provided to all volunteers in late October.

NEW for 2021-2022! Are you a skilled trades or technology professional? We are recruiting Company Program Mentors from a wide range of professions within the growing skilled trades and technology industries for a select number of programs this year.
