Be a Junior Achievement Volunteer at Allegan High School

Junior Achievement is seeking volunteers to present the JA Personal Finance program to Allegan High School Students.

Through JA Personal Finance Blended Model, students experience the interrelationship between today’s financial decisions and future financial freedom.  To achieve financial health and wellness, they learn about money-management strategies, including earning, employment and income, budgeting, savings, credit and debt, consumer protection, smart shopping, risk management, and investing.  At the conclusion of this program, students will be able to identify how their personal finances affect their quality of life.  They will understand how their financial choices will be the basis of how they get what they want and need.

Join Junior Achievement’s national network of more than 237,000 volunteers and help students in your community connect the dots between what they learn in school and the “business of life”— work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy.

JA staff provides training so you are comfortable visiting the classroom.  Training also will be available in the Learning Platform so you are familiar with the program.  Training topics include working with students and the classroom teacher, and understanding and facilitating the JA program.  The time commitment is flexible to maximize the impact you make.  High school-level classes include eight 45-minute sessions.  JA provides you with online access to the volunteer, teacher, and student materials you’ll need to fit your schedule.
