Build a stronger community by educating local students about work readiness, financial literacy and entrepreneurship!

Using lesson plans and materials provided by Junior Achievement, volunteers will work, in partnership with K-5grade teachers, to lead lessons included in Junior Achievement elementary school programs.

JA volunteers can be community members, business associates, retirees, college students and/or parents,

Training will be provided. Individual and group opportunities are available.
