Junior Achievement of Lincoln Seeks Spring Classroom Volunteers
Junior Achievement of Lincoln (JA; www.jalincoln.org) needs volunteers this spring! Did you know Junior Achievement classes are taught in every Lincoln Public School and almost every parochial school? There are nearly 200 teachers requesting JA assistance in the months of April and May who are still in need of a classroom volunteer. As a JA volunteer, you will teach five 30-45 minute lessons in the classroom on one of JA’s proven financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programs. Volunteers will be provided with all of the materials needed to teach the JA lessons, and a step-by-step guidebook that will walk them through exactly what to say and do in the classroom. Volunteers and teachers work together to mutually arrange the required number of sessions, taking into account the classroom schedule and volunteer’s work schedule.
Junior Achievement volunteers go into K-12 classrooms and not only teach the JA lessons, but share their real-world experiences to create impactful learning experiences for the students. There are many reasons to be a JA volunteer, including having the opportunity to represent your company and industry to students. Plus, it’s a chance to connect with the Lincoln community and learn about the challenges and successes local schools face.
Over 380,000 young people have participated in Junior Achievement of Lincoln’s activities throughout the organization’s 47-year history. For more information, visit www.jalincoln.org or contact Alison Gottsch-Walton at (402) 467-1741 /email@example.com.
