Junior Achievement


Want to teach your child’s class about workforce/life skills, how to save money, or start a business?

What is Junior Achievement? JA is an exciting business and economics program designed to complement the California State curriculum standards. The program for each grade level includes a series of five activities focusing on economics, entrepreneurship, personal finance, citizenship, and workforce/life skills.

What do I need to know to be a JA volunteer? Junior Achievement will train you (45-60 minutes) and provide you with all of the materials needed to teach the class.

What does the program require of me? Volunteers only need to give about 6 hours/year! The program includes five activities lasting 30 to 45 minutes each. Each lesson is outlined and scripted and requires only 30-45 minutes of preparation.

Who should teach Junior Achievement? A mom, dad, grandparent, or friend can teach JA and make a difference. This is a great way to volunteer in your child’s class, especially if you are a working parent or simply have limited time to help at the school. Note: You may volunteer to teach in a class other than your own child’s.

What if I still have questions or concerns? Please feel free to contact Angela Chen (school volunteer coordinator) or info@janorcal.org
