COME LEARN HOW YOU CAN INSPIRE YOUNG PEOPLE TO OWN THEIR ECONOMIC SUCCESS ON JANUARY 5th FROM 11am-12pm

- place TBD depending on attendance size (but will be in Madison)

-No cost!

JA provides 100% of the materials for any mentoring you chose to do.  This training will prepare you to enter any Kindergarten-12th grade classroom. After this JA presentation you can decide if you'd like to volunteer for JA and you can select to go into one classroom (any grade) which are typically 5 -7 sessions per classroom. Sessions are 30-45 minutes each. Or, you can also pick multiple classrooms of your choice.

Junior Achievement gives young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices.

Our corporate and community volunteers deliver relevant, hands-on experiences that give students from kindergarten through high school knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. JA programs empower students to make a connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world - enhancing the relevance of their classroom learning and increasing their understanding of the value of staying in school.

This school year, JA in Dane County will reach over 10,000 students in 525 classrooms. Nearly 400 volunteers will play a key role in bringing Junior Achievement to life. By sharing YOUR personal and professional experiences and skills with students volunteers inspire students to reach for the stars.

    Great info and I was so impressed with the number of people who had been touched by Jr. Achievement in their past. I think at least three people took kits home with them and will volunteer.

    This sounds like an interesting program, but how do full time employed people take part? The time kids are in classrooms conflicts directly with most folks' work schedules.

      Hi Marie - many of our volunteers either receive time off to volunteer, or they do a class near their office and do it during their lunch break. Many classrooms are just 30 minutes for 5 visits, so the time commitment is very short. Some people even do it in teams and share the classroom:)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
