We need on average 3-4 parent volunteers per sixth grade classroom during the week of February 2-9. Please contact your child's teacher for more information. Training will be provided at Discovery HS and lunch is provided.
Get involved with JA! The JA BizTown and JA Finance Park programs each require 20 volunteers every day. Volunteers will serve as professional role models to students leveraging their own life experiences to bring authenticity and credibility to the programs. The simulation also serve as a unique personal and professional development opportunity for our volunteers.
What: JA BizTown (6th grade)
Volunteers serve as a business consultant to a small group of 5-7 students as they operate a real business for the day. Through the experience, volunteers will develop their own communication skills and learning how to effectively manage a team.
JA Finance Park (8th grade)
Volunteers will play the role of a personal finance advisor to a group of 5-7 students as they complete a household budget. Through the experience, volunteers will develop their own communication skills and evaluate their own personal financial management habits.
