Looking for a volunteer to teach JA Economics for Success program to middle school students.

JA Economics for Success introduces middle school students (ages 11-14) to initial work and career readiness and personal finance concepts. Students explore career interests and opportunities and learn about financial roles and responsibilities. They learn about planning for a career, including the importance of self-awareness to guide choices, relevant post high school education to enable those choices, and sufficient income to pay for their wants and needs. Students recognize and develop transferable skills, useful regardless of career. And they learn about the costs of expenses and setting personal financial priorities.
