Make an exciting difference in the future of local K-12 students by teaching them economic success skills. JA North Central Michigan has active JA programs in 10 counties making it convient for you to volunteer close to home or work.
Share your real stories from your personal, work and community to inspire students about the opportunities they will face in determining their own path to success.
Junior Achievement is the nonprofit leader in providing innovative financial literacy, work-readiness, and entrepreneurship education. Making JA programs a welcome addition to the classroom by both the teacher and the students.
Volunteers bring the "real world" to the classroom for students to explore and imagine thier path.
JA Programs all have a step by step lesson plan for each session. The time commitment and date(s) of each JA program is determined by the grade and availability of the volunteer and schedule of the teacher.
JA Programs are delivered in a variety of methods such as JA in a Day, traditional - once a week, or accelerrated - holding more than one session in a week or during a visit. JA programs offer flexibility to work with the school schedule and the volunteers availability.
All volunteers recieve training and an orientation prior to delivering the JA programs so they are comfortable and prepared.
Thank you for considering Junior Achievement as a way to make a difference in the future!
