Junior Achievement is the Island’s leading educational charity reaching 5,000 young people in primary and secondary schools.

We help young people to make the connection between school and the world of work, enabling them to develop this skills and knowledge they will need to get a job or start their own business.

What experience do I need to become a Volunteer?

Volunteering can be a rewarding experience and at Junior Achievement we want to give you the opportunity to pass on your valuable life skills to future generations.

Our charity has a range of workshops which are run by volunteers. These volunteers work in pairs in the classroom with teacher support. Subjects include money management, how to get a job plus many more. Look under the ‘Our Programmes‘ tab for more information.

Junior Achievement will provide you with the training and support that you will need.

Volunteers use their own personal experiences to bring the workshops to life.

How can I get involved?

Why not meet us for a coffee and a chat? Telephone 01624 – 666266 and ask for Joy or Lisa. Alternatively click on the link and send an email through the ‘Contact Us’ page.

How much flexibility will I have?

Volunteers choose their own time commitment based around their flexibility. We deliver both half-day to day programmes and it is up to you to how many time you volunteer. You can also choose the age-group and the school you wish to work with, giving you the opportunity to volunteer in your community.
