About

In a culture thriving in financial illiteracy, did you know that the average household has $15,000 in credit card debt or that 68% of all Americans do not maintain a budget? Imagine promoting a generation of young people who are financially capable, problem solvers, who emerge from school prepared and informed about the world of careers ahead of them.

Junior Achievement is a non-profit organization that reinforces the value of an education by teaching young people the pillars of entrepreneurship, work readiness, and financial literacy. We have volunteers go into classrooms to engage young people in interactive programs with a goal of inspiring them to own their economic success in the global marketplace. We also have day events where students explore potential careers, learn how to prepare for a job, how to keep a job, and job-hunting tools for earning a job.

Don’t be shy if you don’t have any experience teaching, we’ll provide you with training and a "kit" that includes everything you need to say and do in the classroom.

Hours are flexible-work out a weekly routine with a teacher or volunteer for a couple hours for just a day. If you’re a student, you can earn service learning credit for volunteering or receive scholarships. Volunteering with JA means you’ll learn to share your ideas in a meaningful way while giving back to youth in your community. Plus, its fun, students love it!

If volunteering for Junior Achievement is something that interests you, contact Hannah Morton at hmorton@jawis.org or 715-214-128.
