Junior Achievement Seeking Volunteers to Teach Financial Literacy

Junior Achievement, the financial literacy and career readiness program designed for middle and high school students, is seeking volunteers in Oregon and Southwest Washington

The program provides hands on learning to develop personal money management skills, and prepares them for the financial challenges of their adult lives.

Volunteer responsibilities include visiting a classroom a total of five times to teach five lessons.

Each lesson is between 30-45 minutes. The volunteer sets the dates and times for the lessons directly with the classroom teacher.
