  • 12 people are interested

Junior Achievement needs volunteers who want to help young people prepare for success in the work world. Our volunteeers teach K-12 students age-appropriate lessons about how businesses work, how to unleash their entrepreneurial spirit, and how to manage their money, regardless of their income.

As a Junior Achievement volunteer, you will visit an elementary, middle school, or high school classroom one to seven times for 30 to 60 minutes per visit. Junior Achievement connects you with a classroom teacher and the two of you work out the schedule for your classroom visits. Junior Achivement provides the classroom lesson plans, workbooks, handouts, journals, games, and activities. In some cases, the curriculum you teach will be digital. You'll receive training on how to use the materials before your enter the classroom

We are recruiting volunteers to teach classes during the 2019-20 school year. We need you to help students become productive employees, successful business owners, effective managers of their money, and engaged citizens of our community. It's easy for you, but can be life-changing for them. Contact us today to register as a volunteer. You can reach us at 608-288-8201 or by email at dane@jawis.org.
