You would be able to schedule your class visits directly with the classroom teacher during the month of May. Teacher preference would be to schedule visits between 1:30 and 2:30. Option to stay and teach two lessons in one hour each visit is an option for scheduling. VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED FOR TWO 1st GRADE CLASSES. Bring a friend and you can each teach a class at the same time!

JA volunteers can be community members, business associates, retirees, college students and/or parents and are able to choose a school, grade level and JA program to work with.
