Junior Achievement Volunteers Teach Kids Valuable Life Lessons
Junior Achievement of Lincoln (JA; jalincoln.org) would not be possible without its volunteers. JA is still looking for classroom volunteers this spring. These volunteers are given the opportunity to make a significant difference in the life of child by teaching them valuable life lessons, like how to balance a check book and save for college. Don’t you wish that someone had taught you those things as you were growing up? Now there is someone, and it’s you!
There are nearly 200 teachers requesting JA assistance in the months of April and May who are still in need of a classroom volunteer. All JA needs is your enthusiasm, life experience, and a willingness to teach children. Junior Achievement of Lincoln provides the training, materials, curriculum, and a classroom of kids ready to meet you. As a volunteer, you will give kids the tools to be financially capable, the skills to be ready for the world of work, and the inspiration to think with an entrepreneurial mind.
Volunteer commitment can vary from five to seven classrooms sessions, 30 to 45 minutes in length. It all depends on the grade level of the program. JA has classrooms ranging from Kindergarten to 12th grade. Volunteers can choose their classroom based on a number of factors. The program is very flexible.
