Help Junior Achievement of Southern California prepare youth for the real world through our Personal Finance lessons at Synergy Charter Academy.

Volunteer in one class of high school students once a week for five weeks to facilitate hands-on lessons about budgeting, credit, and financial awareness.

There are multiple 1-hour time slots throughout the day. Lessons will be on either Tuesdays or Thursdays. Each volunteer will have to commit to one of the listed time slots for the duration of the program. Teaching pairs are welcome.


Junior Achievement provides you with a teaching kit that includes a detailed lesson guidebook and hand-outs/materials for each student. We also provide you with a brief training on classroom management and student engagement. The regular class teacher is always in the class with you, so you'll have support as you facilitate.

Sign up soon! Students are eagerly awaiting you to guide them through the important lessons that will help them navigate adulthood!

Mission Statement

To educate and inspire young people to value free enterprise, business and economics in order to improve the quality of their lives.


Junior Achievement of Southern California is a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Our three pillars of success: entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness, are helping prepare young people for the real world by showing the economic relevance of staying in school, building self-confidence, and inspiring them to dream big for their futures.

At JA Finance Park, students are given a unique life profile after answering a series of future lifestyle questions. Their life profile includes an income, marital status, even kids! Using this new adult persona, students work to create a balanced monthly budget while making decision regarding housing, transportation, insurance, savings, entertainment expenses and much more.
