Why Junior Achievement in the Classroom?

Junior Achievement's unique delivery system provides the training, materials, and support necessary to bolster the chances for student success. At your invitation, we help arrange for business people and local community leaders to visit your classroom several times during the semester. They volunteer to share their workforce and life experience, all while teaching sound economic principles and reinforcing your class curricula using JA's hands-on, age appropriate curricula.

The volunteer will teach one lesson a week and the number of lessons in a program varies with the grade level. Kindergarten through fifth grade contains five lessons. Middle school has six lessons and high school, between five and eight lessons. Once a volunteer is placed into your class, you will be notified, and he or she will contact you to arrange a schedule.
