BANGOR – The Bangor Area Junior Achievement is starting their annual campaign to provide funding for Junior Achievement (JA) programs focusing on financial literacy and work readiness. Area schools have already requested over 75 JA class reaching more than 1,350 Bangor area students.
Junior Achievement classes are made possible by funding through grants, foundations and the business community. Our goal is to fill all 75 class requests and we need your help by making a financial donation or volunteering time to teach a class.
The unique aspect of JAâ€™s programs is the use of volunteers in the classroom to teach the studentâ€™s activities. Instead of developing curriculum for teachers to use on their own, JA programs provide lesson plans for volunteers from the business community to engage in with the students. Over a period of 5 â€“ 10 weeks, a volunteer teaches students, using JAâ€™s hands-on materials, and at the same time is able to share with the students their own experiences, as well as that of their business.
Junior Achievement is the worldâ€™s largest organization dedicated to educating students in grades K-12 about entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.
If you are interested in making a donation or being a volunteer, please contact Jill Jamison at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website at www.jamaine.org
