Junior Achievement of Central Illinois is dependent on community volunteers to serve as mentors, providing inspiration and preparing kids to succeed. During the 2018-19 school year, our student impact has reached nearly 18,000 students delivered by over 600 volunteers. In an effort to continue expanding our volunteer base to meet the ever-growing demands for Junior Achievement programming in our local communities, JA of Central Illinois is partnering with AssureSign to provide streamlined documentation management and best practices which will allow us to continue providing efficient and effective responses to our volunteers.
In compliance with Junior Achievement’s existing volunteer conduct standards, volunteers are required to provide written consent of their agreement to the JA terms and conditions prior to their involvement in the classroom. As the program grows, paperwork and manual process tracking has become increasingly difficult and storage space is limited. As our student impact expands, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our best practices and make our systems scalable. As we look for sustainable processes and efficient document retention practices, AssureSign enables the ability to create and execute a secure and seamless electronic signature experience. With eSignature, the portal can now satisfy the end to end process, thereby allocating more time and funding to serving our community and providing more learning opportunities for our Central Illinois students, making this change a worthwhile investment.
