Volunteer - Why Volunteer?
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? Now there is someone. YOU! Volunteers embody the heart of Junior Achievement. They bring a message of opportunity and economic understanding to classrooms. No matter what your profession, YOU can carry that message to children and change their lives forever.
Junior Achievement provides the keys to your success: the training, the curriculum, and a classroom ready to meet you. All you need is your enthusiasm, your life experience, and a willingness to teach children about taking chances and shooting for the stars.
The CommitmentYour commitment could vary from a single school day to one-hour visits each week for 5-10 weeks, depending on the grade level of the program you choose. You can choose your classroom based on a number of factors: the age level of children that you enjoy interacting with, the proximity of the school to your office or home, the curriculum theme that most closely resembles your work experiences, or other variables. We're flexible! To decide which classroom fits you best, click on this link for a description of JA programs.
