Volunteers visit K-12 classrooms to teach economic and personal finance concepts through fun, interactive programs that help meet Colorado education standards. All of the materials, a step-by-step plan for each lesson, and training provided. Traditional programs include visiting classrooms for 30-45 minutes weekly for 5-6 sessions; a specific schedule is arranged between volunteers and teachers and is based on volunteers' availability and class schedules. One-day volunteer options include "Junior Achievement in a Day" when volunteers teach all program sessions, and "Junior Achievement Finance Park" when volunteers help students navigate the world of personal finance in a reality-based simulation to practice individual and family budgeting. Please visit our website for current volunteer needs and to learn about our new location in the summer 2015.
