Junior Achievement of Mad River
There are a number of ways to get involved with Junior Achievement: You can volunteer in a classroom or for a special event, make a donation or pledge, or come work for us on staff.
Volunteers embody the heart of Junior Achievement. Taking a message of opportunity and economic understanding to a classroom in your community, no matter what your profession, is JA in action.
Junior Achievement’s classroom volunteers come from all walks of life and include business people, college students, and retirees. These dedicated individuals are the backbone of the organization.
Contribute — We need financial supporters who are passionate about helping bring the real world to students, opening their minds to their potential. Please pledge your support now and impact the life of a child.
