A want versus a need. How to balance a checkbook. Don’t you wish that someone had taught you those things as you were growing up?
Junior Achievement volunteers bring their enthusiasm and life experiences to the classroom to teach students lessons about money, job preparation, goal setting, and more.
“I am always amazed at the kids’ reaction and willingness to learn and am truly humbled by the experience,” said Ruth Wright, PwC employee and JA volunteer. “Seeing kids remember topics covered from prior year’s lessons reinforces that the program does work.”
There are many ways to volunteer with Junior Achievement: classroom programs that span 4-6 weeks, JA in a Day, Reverse Job Shadow, JA Job Shadow™, gender specific JA Boy$ / JA Girl$ programs, and more. Find the one that’s right for you!
The 2016-17 school year starts August 15. Sign up today to become a JA volunteer.
