JA Nova Scotia provides hands-on experiential learning in the classroom and through extra-curricular activities. Programs focus on three educational pillars: financial literacy, workplace readiness, and entrepreneurship. JA recruits volunteers from the business community to collaborate on the delivery of programs, which exposes students to real world business perspectives and ideas.

Step into the classroom and help students take steps in the right direction! As a Junior Achievement volunteer, you bring the real world of work to students by facilitating our hands-on, interactive learning experiences. Junior Achievement programs are brought to life with your investment of time and expertise, are fun to deliver, and provide immediate feedback and satisfaction. With school and community support, corporate endorsement and it’s easy to get involved and make a big difference. Show students what it takes to accomplish their goals!
The time is right for you to become an active role model in your community. Your commitment could vary from a single school day to hourly visits over the course of several weeks. Choose from a number of programs that match your background, skills and interests. Take your work back to class and let their success be your inspiration! JA of Nova Scotia provides the training, materials and support to make your volunteer experience fun, meaningful and easy to deliver, at no cost to schools or groups.

I interviewed my dad on video in his final weeks. When I asked about his work and finding meaning through helping others, he responded, “I don’t think you can be focused on, ‘Oh gee, I want to make a difference.’ It has to be spontaneous. If it’s not…there’s some kind of egotistical thing going on. That’s a red flag. You hope you impact people on the deepest level you are capable of at the time. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don’t. You’re trying.
