Volunteering with Junior Achievement

Volunteer working with two students
A want versus a need. How to balance a checkbook. Don't you wish that someone had taught you those things as you were growing up? Now there is someone. YOU. All we need is your enthusiasm, life experience, and a willingness to teach children about how you took chances and shot for the stars. Junior Achievement of Northeastern Pennsylvania provides the training, curriculum, and a classroom ready to meet you!
