I am the District Manager for San Mateo County Junior Achievement of Northern California. I wondered if it was possible to promote the opportunity to volunteer for Junior Achievement. Specifically, There is an upcoming volunteer opportunity on Wednesday, March 13th at Sandpiper ES, 8am-noon in Redwood Shores.
Junior Achievement (JA) provides programs which include concepts on Financial Literacy, Work Readiness and Entrepreneurship to students in Kindergarten through 12th grade presented by volunteers. After attending a one hour mandatory training, our volunteers are ready to spend two to three hours preparing themselves with our detailed lesson plans to present these concepts in a classroom.
JA has been around almost 100 years and is a world wide program. JA of Northern California reached over 122,000 students last year and overall JA reached 10,000,000 plus students world wide.
