ORGANIZATION: Junior Achievement of the Triad
Please visit the new page to apply.
Volunteers will be teaching the Junior Achievement (JA) Our Nation program to 5th graders. JA will provide you with a guidebook of lesson plans with step-by-step instructions, talking points, teaching tips, and all the student activity materials you need to lead the students through fun, hands-on activities centered on one of JA’s many free enterprise themed programs. Before you teach, you will have a training session and will be provided with training videos and other tools to prepare you to lead your lessons and have a successful teaching experience. Volunteers may either lead the sessions individually or you may partner with another volunteer in each classroom, and a classroom teacher will be present at all times to manage classroom behavior.
About Junior Achievement of the Triad
3220 Northline Ave., Greensboro, NC 27408, US
Our mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Our primary purpose is utilizing volunteers' experiences with the business world to enhance students' understanding of business, citizenship, economics, entrepreneurship, ethics and character, financial literacy, and career development. We do our work through strong partnerships with schools and a dedicated volunteer network.
The national Junior Achievement organization was founded in 1919. Our office opened in 1965 with the help of nearly three dozen local business leaders who saw the need for entrepreneurs and schools to partner to better prepare students to be active citizens and workforce members. Since then, our organization has grown from offering an after-school program in Guilford County to offering hundreds of classroom-based financial literacy and economics education programs in five counties: Alamance, Forsyth, Guilford, Randolph, and Rockingham.
