Spend a day at JA BizTown®

BizTown Volunteer Overview

JA BizTown is an innovative, experiential learning program where students apply classroom lessons to a real life simulation experience. Here, volunteer role models guide students in managing businesses, making financial decisions, and completing jobs as they strive to create a successful economy.

Volunteering at JA BizTown requires no advanced prep work. This one-day, high impact experience includes volunteer training prior to the students’ arrival, light breakfast and lunch. We welcome individuals and groups (small and large) to spend a day with students at BizTown, with a minimum of 14 volunteer (total) needed to for BizTown to run. Volunteering is a great team building opportunity and the chance to be a role model while sharing your education, career, and life experience with students.

JA BizTown Staff is on site to ensure a successful Field Trip day, and all program materials are provided. Volunteer attire is business casual or company apparel.

Imagine a day spent as a volunteer role model for NJ’s youth, empowering young people to own their economic success. Envision sharing your education, career, and personal experience, inspiring and preparing 5th and 6th graders to be our future leaders. Picture 12 year olds as CEOs, CFOs, town mayor, healthcare technicians, retail store customer service reps, news reporters, bank tellers, and more, learning valuable employability skills.
