JA Volunteer Media Release and Consent

Junior Achievement USA and Junior Achievement of South Florida (collectively “Junior Achievement”) engage with volunteers (“JA Volunteer”) to deliver K-12th grade programs in-person, online, or through other virtual means, for the purpose of fostering work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills. JA Volunteers deliver these programs featuring content provided by Junior Achievement (“JA Materials”), but JA Volunteers may also create and furnish content for use with these programs (“Volunteer Created Materials”). In presenting the JA Materials or the Volunteer Created Materials, the Likeness (defined below) of the JA Volunteer may be photographed, recorded or otherwise reproduced.


This JA Publicity Release, Copyright Acknowledgement and Content License (the “Agreement”) authorizes Junior Achievement to use the Likeness of the JA Volunteer, clarifies the ownership of JA Materials and Volunteer Created Materials, and grants a license for Junior Achievement to use the Volunteer Created Materials and other content as described below.

For good and valuable consideration, including the opportunity to serve as a JA Volunteer, I agree as follows:
