Volunteer for In-Class Programs

We have elementary, middle, and high school classroom curricula designed to teach elementary students about their roles as individuals, workers, and consumers and to prepare middle grade and high school students for key economic and workforce issues they will face. In addition to bringing the free enterprise system to life in the classroom, Junior Achievement programs teach young people the importance of staying in school. These programs are the backbone of all Junior Achievement programming around the world. We need volunteers to teach weekly, hour-long lessons in local classrooms. These programs last from 5 to 10 weeks, depending on the grade level. Necessary program materials and 2 hours of training are provided by the JA staff.

Volunteer for JA BizTown

JA BizTown™ encourages students to learn about the free enterprise system through active participation in a simulated town. Student experiences vary from working in a bank, a radio station, or a medical center, to managing personal finance such as writing checks and accounting. With a variety of hands-on activities, students realize the relationship between what they learn in school and their successful participation in a simulated economy. Please contact Sally Eidge for more information at sally.eidge@ja.org.
