What is In-Class Volunteering?

Junior Achievement’s financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programs are designed to inspire and prepare students from Kindergarten through 12th grade to own their future economic success. They are taught by trained volunteer role models from the local community – including business professionals, parents, and college students – using professionally designed and rigorously evaluated curriculum materials.

Standard programs are presented by JA’s volunteers for 30-45 minutes each week for five to seven weeks, with the exact time commitments dependent upon the grade level of the students.
