I WANT TO BE A VIRTUAL MENTOR TO OUR STUDENTS

Junior Achievement of South Florida is seeking virtual volunteers to mentor our students. We have determined areas of need in elementary, middle and high school that we would like to match to experts in the community. Some examples include meeting a Chief Financial Officer, understanding how to manage money, and determining the economic implication of the current global situation.

I WANT TO BE A VIRTUAL JA CAREER SPEAKER

JA is also looking for virtual volunteers to share their “job story” or “personal journey”. Our goal is to provide students with a broadened spectrum of jobs in South Florida while also giving them guidancesupport, and perspective for their future journey into the workforce. This video library will also provide teachers with a free online resource, easy to assign and easy to access.
