Junior Achievement Sparks Student Success
Junior Achievement of the Ocoee Region continues to empower the future and unleash the potential of young minds in our area. Our volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential. With the help of our volunteers, JA students develop the skills they need to experience the realities and opportunities of work and entrepreneurship in the 21st-century global marketplace.
JA of the Ocoee Region impacted 4263 students in 190 classrooms during the 2014-2015 school year.
Volunteer for Junior Achievement
TRADITIONAL (WEEKLY VISITS)
The weekly Junior Achievement® program takes place in a child's classroom, during which volunteers present one of JA®'s proven financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programs to a K-12 classroom on a weekly basis, coordinating the schedule with the teacher. Volunteers and teachers work together to mutually arrange the required number of sessions and session lengths, taking into account the classroom schedule and volunteer's work schedule.
1 hour, scheduled at your convenience
30-60 minutes prior to each visit to the classroom
45-55 minutes, generally once-a-week, for 5-6 weeks depending on the chosen program
JA® IN A DAY (ONE DAY VISIT)
The JA® in a Day program is an in-school program, during which volunteers present Junior Achievement curriculum to students in kindergarten through eighth grade in a one-day format. JA® staff works directly with the school to arrange an event date. The volunteers cover all lessons in one visit and can teach in pairs.
Upcoming JA IN A DAY Programs:
