Junior Achievement needs volunteers who want to help young people prepare for success in the work world. Volunteers teach K-12 grade 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 Achievement provides the academic-based, classroom lesson plans, workbooks, handouts, journals, games, and hands-on activities. In some cases, the curriculum you teach will be digital. You receive training on how to use the materials before your enter the classroom.

We are recruiting volunteers to teach classes during the academic 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, and 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 danecounty@jawis.org.

Mission Statement

Junior Achievement is a worldwide organization that inspires and prepares young people for a global economy by bringing volunteer business and community leaders into the classroom to teach work-readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy skills to young people (K-12 grades).

Description

Junior Achievement (JA) helps students realize the education they are getting today will help them to have a bright future tomorrow. Junior Achievement's unique, volunteer-delivered programs show students (grades K-12) all of the possibilities that lie before them. They realize they can choose different paths: attend college, enter a specific trade, or start their own business. Through your participation with Junior Achievement as an organization or as an individual, you will impact the students in your community. For those youth who have participated in Junior Achievement programs:

90% are confident managing their finances.
93% earn their high school diploma or GED (10% higher than the national average).
20% more income is earned compared to the general population.
88% are satisfied in their careers.

Junior Achievement provides volunteers with the academic-based, hands-on lessons and materials, along with training, to confidently teach financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and work-readiness skills in the classroom. Volunteers work with the area's Junior Achievement staff and teachers to provide the lessons and share their knowledge and professional experience with the students.

It's easy, it's fun, and you positively impact the youth and schools in your community.

Junior Achievement of WI - Dane County provides programs in the following counties: Columbia, Crawford, Dane, Dodge, Iowa, Jefferson, Lafayette, Richland, and Sauk.
