Beginning in February, Junior Achievement of Oklahoma will be going to Orvis Risner Elementary School in Edmond to lead 1st and 2nd grade students in activities that help help them better understand how family members' jobs and businesses contribute to the well-being of the family and of the community, and about businesses and the many jobs those businesses offer in a community.
Volunteers will visit the classroom for one 30-45 minute lesson over 5-6 weeks.
Students who participate in JA understand how to control their finances, are better prepared for the workforce, and feel they are personally in control of their destiny, which contributes towards overall optimism and hope.
Volunteers are provided with a curriculum packet with all the materials needed to teach the lessons (including a step-by-step lesosn plan book), and a one-hour training session to prepare them for going into the classroom.
