Picture a world where young people, no matter their background, know how to budget, save and invest; a generation of tenacious individuals armed with the confidence, knowledge and capabilities to take control of their financial futures, their careers and achieve their dreams. Junior Achievement of Central Texas is a locally run non-profit which believes all young people need connection with caring adults and exposure to the wider world around them to achieve their potential. There are several opportunities for you to get involved at a school near you! Click here to find out how you can be a volunteer and support Junior Achievement.
VOLUNTEER FROM HOME!
As we work to provide more digital resources and lessons to our students at this time, we are also in need of volunteers. See below and let us know if you can help!
Bilingual volunteers: We are looking for volunteers to help translate our elementary activities and volunteer videos to Spanish. Currently we have all of the resources available in English only, and we want to make sure we are supporting ALL of our students!
Career Speakers: We are looking for volunteers to film a career day video sharing what their job is and how they got into their career. We had multiple career days cancelled due to COVID and we still want our students to hear from professionals in the industries they are interested in! JA will provide the talking point outline and add you to our library of career speakers.
Launch Lesson Speakers: Are you an entrepreneur who started their own business? We want to hear your story. We are building a library of speakers for students to hear about others path’s to success and feel inspired to pursue businesses of their own. We provide the script and outline, you fill it in with your story!
