The mission of Junior Achievement (JA) is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. JA’s proven real-life relevant programs help students make the connection between what they learn in school and how it can apply to their lives. Junior Achievement programs and volunteer role models provide students with a critically important curriculum centered around three major pillars: workforce readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship providing positive reinforcement of career aspirations, an understanding of money management, and benefits of business ownership.
As a Junior Achievement volunteer, you will be the "classroom consultant" for educators who request JA programs for their students. JA will prepare you to teach with an orientation session and a kit of materials that includes a step-by-step guidebook of lesson plans 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. A standard Junior Achievement program, depending on the program and grade level, consists of 5 to 7 30 to 50-minute visits to a classroom throughout one semester, generally once a week. The volunteer and educator schedule the visits directly to match availability. Volunteers choose the school, grade level and program from the list of educators who have requested JA programs. In addition to standard implementation, there are JA in a Day programs where all sessions are taught in one school day usually in a team-teaching approach with two volunteers.
Get involved today! You will find the Junior Achievement volunteer experience fun and very rewarding!
