Dates Volunteer is Needed:
One to two hours per week for 5 to 7 weeks during the months of January - May, 2019
Description of the Volunteer Opportunity:
Junior Achievement of New Mexico (JA OF NM) seeks volunteers to make a difference in the future of local K-12 students by teaching them economic success skills! JA of NM is the nonprofit leader in providing innovative financial literacy, work-readiness, and entrepreneurship education. We need volunteers to teach during the spring of 2019, beginning in January. You don't need teaching experience, as all scripts and learning materials are created for non-teachers. You just need a passion to inspire and prepare students for economic success, while sharing your personal and professional experiences. The program is highly interactive, so no long lectures to give, but lots of fun and interaction with the students. The total time commitment of a volunteer is about 8 – 10 hours total, spread out over 5 to 7 weeks, depending on the grade level you teach.
Who Will Be Impacted Through This Project:
Children in K - 12th grade will be empowered to own their own economic success through the JA programs.
