Be a Junior Achievement Volunteer


junior_achievement_logoJunior Achievement is a global program that teachers kids basic social studies concepts, such as explaining the concept of needing to work to fulfill needs and wants, being a good community citizen, and voting.

The following teachers have requested the Junior Achievement (JA) program for this winter. JA is led by parent volunteers:

  • Mrs. Acevedo-Vasquez
  • Mrs. Ball
  • Mrs. Hunt
  • Mrs. Muniz
  • Mrs. Origi

Additionally, a number of teachers in grades 1 through 4 have requested the program for the spring.

All curriculum materials are provided, with easy instructions for talking points. Your time commitment would involve leading five classes, 30-45 minutes each, at a time that is mutually convenient for you and the teacher. Volunteer with a friend and you could reduce the time commitment to two to three classes each. New volunteers are also required to attend a one-hour training class. JA is supported by a number of local corporations, so working parents might be able to volunteer and apply the time toward their corporate community service. Additionally, moms and dads tend to enjoy participating in Junior Achievement!

If you are interested in leading the JA program for your child’s classroom, or speak Spanish and could lead the program for one of our bilingual classrooms, please email Laura Voros¬†to volunteer.
