Junior Achievement is an educational program providing 5 to 6 in-classroom lessons taught by parent or community volunteers on the topics of financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship to students in kindergarten through high school.
JA programs are correlated to the California Content Standards for Social Studies for grades K-12 as well as the Common Core State Standards in English/ Language Arts and Mathematics. JA volunteers have an important role in delivering a practical life skills based program that provides enrichment for the students in a way they would not otherwise receive.
We are seeking a Junior Achievement Chairperson for next school year 2017-18. Responsibilities include:
- Contact our District JA Rep in the beginning of the year and order kits for every classroom.
- Obtain from the PFC a list of volunteers who signed up during Registration and recruit volunteers for the remaining classrooms. Additional volunteer names should be collected during Back-to-School Night. We strive for 100% coverage - every class deserves to benefit from this curriculum.
- Schedule a training meeting with the District JA Rep. This will be an evening time slot for the new JA volunteers. The new Volunteers pick up their kits during the meeting.
- Communication with volunteers, teachers, front office.
- Collect the JA bags and materials at the end of the year (volunteers can leave under the table by the Front Office, from where you collect them)
- Arrange with the District JA rep to pick up bags at the beginning of the new school year.
The bulk of the work is at the beginning of the school year and then some follow up emails throughout the school year. All templates, emails, etc have already been created and can be reused.
