More than 1,500 young people in Van Wert, Ohio, schools are building economic knowledge and personal financial literacy through JA programs during this school year. The learning is possible because of our community's educators who invite JA programs into their classrooms and the volunteers who mentor them.

To join us as a volunteer, contact Mark Verville at (419) 203-6619 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
