JA Volunteer Training Resources

In Honour of Royden Richardson

Volunteers and mentorship are at the core of every opportunity Junior Achievement creates for Canada's youth. As the world leader in education for financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurial skills, we attract the best and brightest people looking to make a significant impact on our collective future.

Our volunteers give because their gifts make a difference for the individuals they reach and for the people and workplaces they, in turn, transform. Royden Richardson understood this, and his legacy lives on through the JA Canada Training for Volunteers and Educators, where JA's community of volunteers is supported and celebrated.

JA volunteers protect and nurture Royden's legacy by offering similar gifts of their own unique talents, personal experiences, and different perspectives. Royden's legacy is the path we can all follow to create a brighter future for the youth of today and tomorrow.

This is where you begin as a volunteer! Once you have your access code (your JA Charter contact will share it with you), you can access this content and begin your journey.

The Getting Started videos will help you learn more about JA and our impact and the roles & responsibilities of the volunteer. We offer insights on the students you will meet and how to engage with them and provide valuable tips for how to prepare for your classroom experience.

This is the JA Campus Volunteer Orientation.
