The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
JA Volunteer inspiring youth to own their economic success
Lead fun, hands-on Junior Achievement (JA) activities for the grade level of your choice (Kindergarten through 3rd grade students) during one school day. JA programs-in the core content areas of work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy-ignite the spark in young people to experience and realize the opportunities and realities of work and life in the 21st century.
As role models, JA of Sacramento volunteers bring the curriculum to life with real world experiences shared during classroom sessions. JA Staff provide training and all of the curriculum materials, and the teacher remains in the classroom the entire time. No matter what your profession, your life experience and determination to succeed means that you can serve as a role model. Our volunteers come from diverse occupations, backgrounds and age groups, including business professionals, parents, retirees, and college students. You are welcome to sign-up with a friend or colleague to team-teach.
