JA BizTown® Volunteer Training

Thank you for joining us as a volunteer at JA BizTown! It will be a meaningful day, one that you and the students you work with will remember for a long time to come.

Each volunteer will be assigned to one of 14 storefronts in the JA BizTown simulated mini-town. In most instances, assignments will be provided in advance of the volunteer experience, though it may sometimes occur on the morning of. Each business and each volunteer will have a Guidebook for use throughout the Field Trip day.

JA BizTown Volunteer Guidebooks include:

  • A schedule of the day
  • Function of the business and job descriptions
  • Scripts to facilitate Business Set Up and Staff Meetings
  • A checklist to support your students as they manage their business and responsibilities

JA Staff will provide training for all volunteers on the morning of the experience prior to the students’ arrival. The following brief training videos will also help you prepare for your volunteer experience at JA BizTown.

Please contact Stephanie Karpowicz with any questions about the volunteer experience.
