This school year, Junior Achievement will make a huge IMPACT, reaching more than 100,000 students in South Central PA. This is the single largest increase in our franchise history, and will require over 8,000 volunteers.
Much of this growth is due to the expansion of two of our high school programs where every student at grade level participates. The STEM Summit is a day-long program for freshmen focused on career exploration. REAL Life is a day-long program for seniors focused on personal finance. YES! (Your Economic Success) is a half day morning program for 6th, 7th and 8th graders focused on careers and personal finance.
To accomplish this, we are reaching out to local businesses to assist with volunteer recruiting. We would love your company to adopt one or more days and bring a group of your co-workers to the event for the day. (Five or six employees per day is our goal.)
The day typically begins around 7:30 AM with training, and then runs till about 2:30 PM. The activities are fun and engaging and don't require a lot of preparation. Breakfast and lunch are provided by the school.
How to Get Involved:
