Ways to Help

By supporting Junior Achievement you can have a direct and positive impact on students in South Dakota.

Three ways you can get involved!

Volunteer Your Time. 

Volunteers play a vital role in bringing Junior Achievement to life.  By sharing their personal and professional experiences and skills with students from their community, volunteers help students make the connection between what they are learning in school and what they will need to succeed in work and life.  

Junior Achievement makes volunteering fulfilling, with flexible scheduling options.  Our curriculum provides everything needed to make participation in JA interactive and engaging for students.

For as little as an hour a week, volunteers make a difference in the lives of young people.  The Junior Achievement experience leaves volunteers feeling proud, energized, and hopeful about a better future for our young people.

Volunteer requirements:

  • Attend a training session.
  • Teach five to twelve one-hour sessions with JA materials and hands-on activities. 
  • Share experiences that will benefit students and encourage their future careers.

Invest in Junior Achievement financially.

Junior Achievement is supported through the generous gifts of both businesses and individuals in our community. They view their contributions as a good investment in our children's future. JA supporters come from all walks of life and their gifts reflect their diversity from large corporate donors to small "mom and pops". You can support JA with cash contributions, bequest and planned giving, stocks and bonds, in-kind gifts; the possibilities are endless.

To reach our goals we need financial supporters who are passionate about helping bring the real world to students, opening their minds to their potential. Please pledge your support now and impact the life of a child....

Participate in a special event.

The annual JA Bowl-a-Thon and Longest Day of Golf events are key parts of providing programming to South Dakota students. Companies and individuals participating in these events not only make a huge impact in area schools, they also reap the benefits of taking part in some of the most fun and inspiring charity events in South Dakota.

Build camaraderie with co-workers, network with other participants, and increase community awareness within your organization or group of friends. Click here to learn more.

We thank each of our local supporters for helping our young people create their visions of the future.
