Great opportunity to mentor and inspire middle school students at Corning Painted Post Middle School. We are looking for community members to volunteer in the classroom using our career-readiness program JA It's My Future. JA It's My Future offers practical information about preparing for the working world. Students explore potential careers, discover the four factors to consider in choosing a career, and recognize basic job-hunting tools. As a volunteer you will be matched with a class that inspires you, and provided training and materials to deliver the program.
Junior Achievement's mission is to empower young people to own their economic success focusing on three pillars: Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship, Career-Readiness. Volunteers engage students using meaningful activities that strengthen students' knowledge on how to create their own business, understand money in today's marketplace and what careers are available for them to discover.
Today, JA reaches more than 4.8 million students per year in more than 100 markets across the United States.
