Is JA at your child's school?
Research says that the greatest predictor of student achievement is not economic or social status, but rather the extent to which parents become involved in their children's education. Kids believe they can be whatever they want when they grow up. And they're right. But getting there isn't always easy. No matter what your profession, your life experience and determination to succeed means you can serve as a role model - not just to your child - but to their peers too.
Here's how you get involved:
Volunteer - As a JA classroom volunteer, you can give your child and their classmates the opportunity to discover how their talent and abilities can create a better life for themselves.
