With you as their volunteer, students will see how their schoolwork relates to the real world, and how what they learn in school leads to future successes. You’ll be surprised at how easy and rewarding your volunteer experience is! Each of the sessions contains one or two interactive activities. The classroom teacher provides the support and discipline. Junior Achievement provides training, lesson plans and the engaging classroom materials-all you need is your enthusiasm!
The time commitment per class is 45-55 minutes, plus preclass preparation and a one to two hour training session in advance of the class. It is also recommended that you set up a meeting with the teacher prior to entering the classroom to discuss the dynamics of the class. Usually, the classroom visits are over a 5 to 12 week time period. You schedule your presentation days and times directly with your teacher-it’s flexible. You can indicate a preference for Elementary, Middle or High School level.
