Volunteers arrive at school early in the day, and one or two volunteers will be join students in a classroom to deliver the easy-to-follow curriculum, which is activity-based

and grade-specific. You are invited to bring real-world experience and perspective to the conversation. While volunteers have autonomy to lead the JA lessons, the teacher is always present to assist. To ensure that you are prepared for the day, JA provides training prior to the event.
