Junior Achievement of Southeastern Pennsylvania is a non profit committed to empower young people to their own economic success. We provide programming on Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship, and Work Readiness.
Junior Achievement is partnering with Building 21 High School to run JA Company Program, Junior Achievement's signature program, this spring. Students in the JA Company Program start and run their own business, including such tasks as raising capital, coming up with and ordering a product, and selling that product. As students wrap up the program, they liquidate their company, make an annual report, and pay dividends on their stock offering. The program will run in class, meeting around 20 times.
JA and Building 21 HS are looking for a finance or business professional, preferably someone with a entrepreneurial background, to volunteer. The volunteer needs to attend at least 7 sessions, providing mentoring and guidance to students as they tackle the challenges of entrepreneurship. The times you visit the class are flexible and will be worked out with the teacher. Junior Achievement will provide training and materials to make sure you are prepared as possible. If you are interested, please respond to this listing; JA will then contact you to further discuss this incredible opportunity.
