Junior Achievement (JA) of Northern New England is seeking volunteers to empower middle school students to be confident in their career paths and money management skills, by teaching JA's turnkey curriculum focused on financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship in their classrooms.
In this program, a volunteer is paired with a middle school classroom, and delivers one grade-level-specific JA lesson to the class for 45 minutes a week, for a period of 6 weeks. Volunteer delivery of these programs allows students to interact with a member of the business community around them, and learn from the personal and professional stories that the volunteer shares as they deliver the lessons.
JA of Northern New England staff train all volunteers and provide all of the lesson plans and materials to make the teaching process smooth and enjoyable for all volunteers. We are working with several middle schools in the Greater Boston area in which we will need to place volunteers starting in May - we look forward to hearing from you!
If volunteers would like to reach out directly to JA of Northern New England, please email Deirdre O'Connor Mitchell, Director of Programs, at firstname.lastname@example.org
