Join us for our 3rd annual JA in a Day at Nikiski North Star Elementary on Friday, November 18, 2016! Volunteers will be presenting lessons on financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entreprenership to kindergarten through 5th grade students throughout the course of the school day.

Junior Achievement will provide all necessary program materials, as well as a 30-minute training to ensure you feel comfortable and prepared going into the classroom.

We provide a step by step program guide that will walk you through how to facilitate each lesson. The detailed script directs volunteers through the activity and discussion. The time commitment is minimal compared to the significant impact you make.

Before visiting the classroom, JA suggests volunteers spends a minimum of 30 minutes reviewing and preparing for their lesson. JA staff is available to answer your questions or make suggestions pertaining to your volunteer assignment.

In addition to training, JA will provide breakfast and lunch to all volunteers on the day of the event.

Please contact Amarin Ellis at aellis@ja-alaska.org for more information.
