JA Company Program: Virtual Volunteer
When: Immediate Need
To adjust to the recent closings of schools and public spaces, Junior Achievement of Northern New England quickly developed online learning opportunities for educators and students participating in the JA Company Program (JACP).
For JA Company teachers eager to continue the JACP in their classes, we have created an online platform where they can share and access resources, as well as request and obtain virtual volunteers. On this platform, teachers submit a topic with three questions. JA then reaches out to our extensive network to recruit a subject matter expert, who then creates a short video addressing the topic and questions. This video is then entered into our online library where all teachers can access it as a resource. Topics fall under the categories of Finance, Supply Chain, Marketing, Sales, and Leadership.
Looking for an easy virtual volunteer opportunity? Consider filming a short 5 minute video for our Company Program students! Take a look at the list of specific topics we are looking for someone to discuss and share their knowlegde on, here.
