Volunteers Needed to Teach Students About Financial Literacy


Junior Achievement, a not-for-profit organization that aims to equip young people with everything they need to achieve financial success, is looking for volunteers to teach lessons to students for their in-class programs, beginning immediately and running through May.

Elementary, middle, and high schools all over the Oregon metropolitan area are in need of volunteers, including schools in Beaverton, Portland, Gresham, Hillsboro, Happy Valley, and Clackamas.

Classroom volunteers would visit a class a total of five to seven times and teach lessons for about 30 to 45 minutes. Each volunteer will receive a teaching kit with everything they need, including a guide that scripts and outlines each lesson.  

For more information and to volunteer, contact Jennifer Arritola, Senior Director of In-Class Programs for Junior Achievement of Oregon and SW Washington, at 503.312.3036 or find a JA office near you to get involved.

Editor’s Note: The Northwest Credit Union Foundation supports financial education by partnering with several organizations, including Junior Achievement, which provides business, economic, and life skills programs to the region’s youth. The program’s mission is to ensure young people are equipped to succeed in a global economy.
