Organization: Junior Achievement programs
Volunteer Coordinator: Melissa Griffiths
Contact Information: 523-2300, firstname.lastname@example.org, ja.org
Organization Description: Junior Achievement programs help to prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.
It can be really valuable to learn important skills about workforce readiness, finances, and entrepreneurship while still in school. If you are a professional, consider sharing your experience with kids of any age, while teaching one of Junior Achievement’s programs. Depending on the age group, there are different curricula and varying time commitments, but always an opportunity to help prepare kids of your community for the future. If you contact Melissa at JEDC about Junior Achievement, you can be paired with a teacher in our community to get started.
We are looking for volunteers with the following skills: Finance and accounting, math and science, fundraising, program management, general office, administration, public relations, outreach, health care, public speaking, leadership development, sales and marketing, legal services, teaching, management, writing and editing.
