TOMORROWS ARE IMPORTANT
JA'S HARD PIVOT TO ONLINE PROGRAMMING IS MEETING THE NEEDS OF STUDENTS TODAY
Right now in our history, today is uncertain.
But tomorrow represents hope and promise. COVID-19 has quickly and profoundly changed our daily lives. Schools have now closed for face-to-face learning through the end of the school year. As unsettling as this time has been to us as adults, consider the impact this is having on thousands of young people who are at home.
Junior Achievement of the Michigan Great Lakes and it's District offices have come together to provide resources for parents, teachers and students. We are doing this so our kids can spend more time planning for and dreaming about tomorrow, and less time worrying about today. We are committed to doing this until we can all be certain again.
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED AND TOOLS TO USE
WATCH OUR LOCAL, VIRTUAL VOLUNTEER VIDEOS
Like a Virtual Job Fair, watch these short, impactful videos of Michigan-based employees and business owners who have shared their experience in their field of expertise with these Career Speaker Series videos!
Interested in submitting your own video to support this effort? Download our Virtual Volunteer Guide for the steps to provide this great resource to kids.
Kids K-12 can use these resources on their own with our easy download and print formats. These resources are organized by school level and can be used whether or not you've engaged in a JA program in the past.
