t in Need of Volunteers for Fall Semester
Junior Achievement (JA) of Central Florida needs volunteers for the upcoming fall semester to teach JA classes in Orange County and Seminole County elementary, middle and high schools. JA mentors educate students about free enterprise, financial literacy, workforce readiness and entrepreneurship.
“We reached 78,000 students last year, but we still have JA Program requests from educators in many schools that need to be fulfilled,” said Craig Polejes, president of JA of Central Florida, Inc. “JA provides all the training, material and support you need, including detailed lesson plans and the resources needed to lead activities.”
Volunteer opportunities are available at three levels and require approximately one-hour per week for five to seven sessions, depending on the program. Training is held monthly at Junior Achievement’s office at 2121 Camden Road in Orlando. For more information about volunteer opportunities, contact Rachel Whitmire at (407) 898-2121, ext. 30 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
