Junior Achievement is seeking passionate and dedicated mentors to help in bringing financial literacy to K-12 students all across San Diego County! One of our most influential programs, JA in A Day, needs volunteer support to ensure that our students are real world ready in the future!
JA in a Day is a unique initiative that allows volunteers to teach the lessons of Junior Achievement's elementary school programs in an effective one-day effort. During the course of JA in a Day, students learn about various aspects of financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. For instance, students in the second grade learn about "Our Community" and will have a chance to see how money moves through a community, creating jobs and generating tax proceeds that pay for schools, parks and streets. In the first grade, the students learn about "Our Families." The JA curriculum introduces students to family members' jobs and how professional careers contribute to the well-being of the family.
