Volunteer with us at JA BizTown!

Volunteers serve as our conduit between the real world and what is being taught in the classroom. They take the concepts the students learn in the classroom and show how they impact their future lives in our local and global community.

JA Biztown Volunteers

Each simulation day requires between  20-25 volunteers to assist in the visit.

We cannot run the JA BizTown simulation without volunteers to supervise and assist the students, and by volunteering, you are making it possible for our schools to participate in the program!

As a volunteer, you will be assigned to one of the businesses in JA BizTown, where you will assist the students in managing business meetings, completing their job duties for the day, and help them to stay on task and focus on their business and personal goals.

JA BizTown volunteers do not need to have specific expertise and are encouraged to share real-world experience/advice to the students as they learn what it means to be a working professional.

The total time commitment is 5 hours, which includes a 1  hr training the morning of before the students arrive, where you will receive training on how to facilitate the students’ learning in the business they’ve been assigned. We will go over what to expect and how to make the day successful for you as well as the students. During the day, you will receive a volunteer binder, with helpful checklists, FAQs, and troubleshooting tips.

If you are interested in volunteering with one of our schools for a day, or would like to volunteer on an “on-call” basis, please contact:
