Volunteer in your community - Financial Advisors NEEDED

Junior Achievement needs business leaders to become involved as volunteers at

Overview of REAL Life a financial literacy forum:

The forum could be run at any grade level.  However, we encourage schools to consider using it at the junior or senior levels.  At this age group, they are more inclined to be dealing with real financial issues like owning a car or planning for college.  We have found that the relevancy issue is much stronger because of this. We do require that all students at grade level participate.
Junior Achievement provides the program to schools for FREE. As a business based non-profit, we rely on financial support from the business community to help cover the costs of the program. 

What is the Role of the volunteer?

  • REAL LIFE utilizes about 20 volunteers per day
  • Typically the day begins at 7:30 am with volunteer training
  • Then the volunteer works with students during the entire school day. Lunch is provided by the school. The day ends around 2:30.  
  • The different activities that the volunteer could work on are as follows; Budget Builder, The Real Life Game, $ is Wrong, Financial Jenga or Insurance Jeopardy.
