Junior Achievement of Eastern Iowa is currently looking for volunteers to help students in Waterloo Middle School classrooms to explore their boundless opportunities.  Junior Achievement is a local non-profit organization that provides activity-based education to local students.  JA makes it easy to volunteer, volunteering takes place in the classroom during school hours, and each lesson includes an activity that makes it fun for both the volunteer and students! Want more information?  Check out the details below and then email Heather – hhenning@jaeasterniowa.org  to learn more about volunteering.
1. What Volunteers Do: They go into classrooms and teach students how money works, how education leads to career success, and how to start and run a business.
2. Experience Needed: None. Volunteers don’t need to know anything about those things because JA provides the full lesson, materials, talking points, and training (in person OR VIRTUAL) to make the classroom experience successful. They just ask that volunteers provide their time, stories to share, and enthusiasm for the content they are teaching.  Teachers are present during your volunteer experience, and we give you all you need to be successful!
3. Time Commitment: The time commitment is minimal – it’s about 30-45 minutes, once a week for 5 – 6 weeks.  Classes are scheduled to start in January and/or February.
