JA Worldwide Global Council
The JA Worldwide Global Council is a body of distinguished individuals who are committed to the mission of JA around the world. Global Council members have the professional experience and stature to be considered for the global Board of Governors, but do not have the time to commit to governance responsibilities. Instead, members of the Global Council participate in and support JA as their schedules allow, whether connecting with budding entrepreneurs, participating in JA events, or mentoring our global staff.
Ideal candidates for the JA Worldwide Global Council are globally minded corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, JA alumni, former JA board members, and other JA supporters who have an abiding belief in the mission of JA, an interest in engaging in JA’s regional and global events, the capacity and desire to significantly support JA Worldwide, and an enthusiasm for attracting additional supporters to JA.
As a member of our Global Council, you’ll connect with budding entrepreneurs, participate in JA events, mentor our staff, or support our cause. In return, you’ll be recognized in our internal and external communications and be afforded unique opportunities to contribute to our thought leadership on youth empowerment and education. Along the way, you’ll impact the lives of young people who represent our best investment in the future, as they create new technologies, find cures for diseases, and develop permanent solutions to global challenges.
Global Council members support JA as their schedules allow, whether connecting with young entrepreneurs or serving as a judge or panelist at JA events.
