What's Happening In Southern Alberta

Volunteer with JASA’s Indigenous Programs

volunteer to inspire Alberta's indigenous youth

indigenous high school studentIn 2014  JASA, and the Future Aboriginal Business Leaders Symposium (FABLS), began working with educational consultants and curriculum experts to make certain JA programs relevant to indigenous students.  With the help of Heather Black, the JA Coordinator for Indigenous Programs, we’re further expanding our reach. Now we need volunteers to help reach even more students!

As a Junior Achievement (JA) volunteer, you help equip the students with the necessary skills to be successful in their education and career, and instill the importance of financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurial spirit.

As a JA Volunteer You

  • Positively impact and inspire young Indigenous learners
  • Bring your practical and personal business expertise into the classroom
  • Share elements of your own personal success to help students develop confidence, leadership and critical thinking skills.
  • Facilitate in the Indigenous community within Southern Alberta.
  • Gain professional development opportunity where your leadership, mentorship and public speaking skills are utilized.

Whether you’re new to JA programs and the volunteer experience, or just want to learn more about JA’s Indigenous programs in general, we have an upcoming training session just for you. JA provides the program materials, training and support to make your experience fun, meaningful, and easy to deliver.
