Volunteer at JA in a Day
Time & Location
About The Event
What is Junior Achievement? Junior Achievement (JA) is the world's largest organization dedicated to educating students in grades K-12 about entrepreneurship, work readiness, and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.
What is JA in a Day? JA in a Day offers volunteers a unique opportunity to get involved with Junior Achievement without juggling schedule conflicts or long-term commitments. It is a high-impact way to deliver JA's lessons for the 7th & 8th graders at our Adopt-A-School partner, Tuscaloosa Magnet School, all on the same day. JA in a Day lessons will cover topics like personal branding, career clusters, career mapping, interviewing skills, and soft skills.
What do volunteers do? Volunteers will participate in a training session during the week of April 6 where they will obtain their classroom materials and teacher assignments. On the day of the event, volunteers will conduct the lessons in the assigned 7th or 8th grade classroom. During the event, teachers are present in the classroom at all times to partner with volunteers, help maintain discipline, and answer any of the volunteer's questions.
What is the time commitment? Prior to the event, volunteers will participate in a training session during the week of April 6. On the day of the event, volunteers will teach a class either 7:40-10:30am or 10:10am-12:30pm.
