Let’s talk JA classroom volunteers! If you’ve ever been a JA classroom volunteer or have ever considered volunteering, we’re looking for you.
School looks different in a lot of ways this year, but JA of Lincoln classroom volunteers are just as needed as ever! In fact, we’re hearing from teachers that the dose of normalcy provided by the JA classroom experience is especially welcome during this challenging school year.
From the volunteer perspective, delivering the JA curriculum to a classroom has never been more convenient. You can impact a classroom of students via Zoom from the comfort of your office or home, on a schedule that works best for you. Provided with detailed lesson plans and talking points, you can share your job and life experiences with students that will help them be ready to successfully take on their finances, prepare for their first job, and have an appreciation for entrepreneurship.
The time commitment is minimal (just three 15-minute lessons!), and all training resources are provided. Ready to make a difference in local classrooms without ever leaving home? Learn more and sign up online at bit.ly/JALNKEngage
While we’re talking volunteering, we also want to talk to those of you who have been a JA classroom volunteer in the past. Do you remember the nerves you felt before volunteering for the first time? Or seeing the light bulbs go off for your students? How about the thank you letters from your students after your Junior Achievement lessons are complete? Junior Achievement volunteers make a big impact on students' lives, and we want to share your amazing stories.
