Lead weekly fun, hands-on Junior Achievement (JA) lessons for kindergarten - 3rd grade students (your choice!) for a 6-week period. The day and time is determined between the volunteer and teacher. JA lessons focus on financial literacy, career readiness and entrepreneurship.
As role models, 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.
