With the Asia Pacific region being home to 60% of the world’s youth, JA Asia Pacific is dedicated to enabling and empowering youth to benefit from the region’s economic development, and to creating a positive impact in their lives and communities.
Our 17 member JA Asia Pacific network is powered by close to 52,000 volunteers, teachers, and mentors from all sectors of society, reaching more than 3 million students around the region.
We are always looking for talented volunteers to help the organization achieve its mission. Our volunteers are the lifeblood of JA’s hands-on, experiential programs.
Our corporate partners are critical in providing quality volunteers to train students as well as the necessary financial support to implement programs and change lives.
Partners collaborate with us on program development and help pass on wisdom to the next generation of business leaders. What we look for in partners is simple: a desire to impact lives in meaningful ways with a view to a sustainable partnership. We’d love to hear from you and better understand your CSR vision.
Support Our Work
We believe every young person has the potential to create and contribute to a vibrant and successful future, personally and socially. But not all are born with equal opportunities. We need your help to ensure that youth in the Asia Pacific region have the chance to realize their dreams and become the leaders of tomorrow.
Your individual contributions can help go a long way to making sure we deliver innovative, hands-on programs to as many students in the region as possible.
