Opportunity Details

Children & Youth Education

Age Minimum (with Adult): 18+, Minimum Age:21+

JA Company Volunteer Lead

The JA Company Program/Rising Women Program teaches high school students about business, entrepreneurship, and economics by having them create, market, and operate their own company. Students sell stock to raise capital, elect officers, buy materials, market their product or service, pay a dividend to stockholders, and liquidate their company. By organizing and operating an actual business, students learn to understand and appreciate the responsibilities each individual has in running a business.

A group of 1 to 5 volunteers are assigned to a JA Company Program team of students to deliver at least 12 sessions.

Time Commitment

  • The group meets once a week after school from 5-7PM for 12 sessions.

JA provides all the training and materials you’ll need to be prepared, including an overview of the curriculum, training on classroom management and tips for effective student communication. Fall and Spring training sessions are held. 
Sign up for one of the Training Sessions below.


Note: To signup a volunteer that does not meet the minimum age only the minimum age with adult age, parents/adults need to create a team which includes themselves and the volunteer(s) that are under age. The parent/adult can then “sign up with a team” for the opportunity selecting the team members who will volunteer. Click here for more information related to Family & Youth Group Volunteers.
