Junior Achievement of Southeastern Pennsylvania and Reading Intermediate High School have partnered this year to bring JA Career Success, a program tailored for high school students, to all of their 9 th grade students. JA Career Success is set up to empower high school students with career related know-how and skills including job hunting, resume building, work priorities, and soft skills to equip them for in the 21 st -century workforce. JA is looking for adults in the Berks community who want to donate their time, knowledge, and passion to help the students begin to navigate the professional world.

All we need is your enthusiasm, life experience, and a willingness to teach children about how you took chances and shot for the stars. Junior Achievement will provide everything else; including training, curriculum and materials.

Each volunteer will commit to one class period that will occur on the same day of the week and same time for the course of seven weeks. Each session runs about 45 minutes. The total commitment is seven 45-minute sessions. We are planning to start the week of April 10th.
