Junior Achievement seeking volunteers

Junior Achievement of Wisconsin (JA) is looking for volunteers who can help young people connect the classroom to the real world and prepare for successful financial futures and self-supporting careers, according to a news release. With age-appropriate lessons for every grade level from kindergarten to 12th grade, Junior Achievement volunteers can pick the age, school, and content they want to teach.

The commitment to be a JA volunteer can fit any schedule, with classroom opportunities ranging from a single day, a few visits per month, or delivery of five to seven weekly classroom lessons over the course of two months. Another option is for groups or teams of volunteers to share the classroom visits. JA provides all volunteers with the classroom lessons, materials, and training they need to make an impact on a student’s future.

Junior Achievement is in need of 30 volunteers to deliver life lessons to more than 500 students in Beaver Dam, Cottage Grove, DeForest, Ixonia, Jefferson, Johnson Creek, Madison, Middleton, Mount Horeb, Prairie du Sac, Sauk City, and Verona.
