Volunteering with JA is a win-win experience
I was impressed with JA’s high level of professionalism and pleasantly surprised by how well organized the whole project was. There were clear roles and responsibilities, timelines, tips and lessons learned from past sponsors, which really helped me be effective in my role. Above all, the JA staff were all very positive and helpful, and made my experience very enjoyable – one that I would highly recommend to others.
Discovering the business leader within
As a JA student from Romania, I have had the opportunity to participate in two programmes. The first, the JA Company Programme is one of the most interesting programs I have ever been involved in and the second, a one-day innovation camp that really tested my entrepreneurial skills. I am also proud to say that I won the first place.

Skills building through mentorship
I wanted to pass my experience and knowledge on to young people to help them in their future careers, so I joined the Skills for the Future programme as a business mentor.
Using innovation and creativity to address community needs
Our innovation camp brought new people together to think up new creative ways of addressing social issues within different communities across Italy. This was a great experience, because I had the opportunity to work as part of a diverse team and gain invaluable insights from experienced business mentors.
