DATES, LOCATIONS AND TIMES WILL VARY DEPENDING ON EDUCATOR REQUESTS.
Details:As a Junior Achievement volunteer, you will be the “classroom consultant” for educators who request JA programs for their students. We will prepare you to teach with an orientation session that covers the JA classroom kit of materials. The kit includes a step-by-step guidebook of lesson plans and all the student activity materials you need to lead the students through fun, hands-0n activities centered on one of JA’s many free enterprise themed programs.
The JA High School Experience includes a combination of instructional approaches that allow students to progress from foundational principles through application, synthesis, and immersion in JA’s three pillars: entrepreneurship, financial literacy and career readiness.
Each course is accompanied by state creditable instructional content (IC) that include projects and support career pathways that most closely align with JA areas of expertise. The courses are primarily teacher-taught with volunteer engagement opportunities throughout. Each course also incorporates a business-based case study (CS), which integrates interdisciplinary lessons on core principles. Case study sponsorship and volunteer engagement opportunities bring real-world professionals into the learning.
Combined, these components equip students to learn concepts that meet educational standards; synthesize elective concepts; show learning through tangible artifacts; and demonstrate competencies for future success (e.g., collaboration, creativity, innovation, critical and analytical thinking, cultural agility, effective communication, and self-direction).
