Four Citi volunteers and two volunteers from NAS Jax taught JA Girl$ classes in 6th, 7th and 8th grades at Waverly Academy on May 6. The lessons focused on smart money management and concepts in entrepreneurship.
Young ladies in 7th grade participated in JA It’s My Business! during which they worked in groups to create a blueprint for a school club, then presented the plan to their peers.
They also discovered the skills and knowledge needed to start a business when they learned how to “fill a need” and brainstormed product designs.
This is the fifth year that women from Citi have been volunteering with JA Girl$. Citi’s Coleen Logan, pictured above, has supported JA Girl$ during throughout those years by coordinating volunteers and teaching Junior Achievement lessons herself.
If you are interested in volunteering for JA Girl$, please contact Sabrina Kinslow, JA Girl$ Program Manager, at 904-398-9944 ext.225 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
