JA In A Day
A complete day of JA Education
What is JA in a Day?
What Do Volunteers Do?
The volunteers participate in a training session (on-site at your location or at our office) prior to the event where they will obtain their classroom materials and teacher assignments. On the day of the event, volunteers conduct the lessons in the assigned classrooms.
What Is the Role of the Teacher?
During the event, teachers are present in the classroom at all times to partner with the volunteers, help maintain discipline and answer any of the volunteer's questions.
What Is JA Staff's Role?
What Is My Time Commitment?
Usually 4.5 hours. Volunteers arrive at the school around 8:30-9:00 a.m. and begin lessons. Typically, volunteers are done between 1 and 2 p.m.

JA RESPONDS is a series of round table discussions aimed at engaging local voices in problem-solving and thought leadership. We will feature local parents, students, educators, business leaders, and community members who believe in the mission of Junior Achievement and are committed to creating a better future for young people in Connecticut and beyond.

2022 Partners in Achievement Breakfast
Since its inception 18 years ago in Hartford, and 12 years ago in New Haven, the Partners in Achievement breakfast has grown exponentially. This event showcases the incredible students, volunteers, and educators who have benefited from their JA experiences. It also provides a great opportunity to network with local businesses.
