Help prepare students for the global economy at JA Finance Park

No comments

School is back in session in Northern Virginia and  our friends at Junior Achievement Finance Park need your help!

Junior Achievement, an organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy, needs more volunteers at Finance Park, conveniently located in Central Fairfax.

If you have not been to Finance Park, prepared to be wowed.

By the way, do you know a senior or retiree who has not joined RSVP yet? We will be holding a free RSVP Info session at  Junior Achievement Finance Park, Wednesday, Oct. 17, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please  share the following link https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?oeidk=a07efne0v6d40ad2eba&oseq=&c=&ch=

The total time commitment is 5 hours, including a 1-hour training the morning of your scheduled volunteer day. You will use your training knowledge to guide students through different phases of the day that simulate real-world budgeting decisions, spending research, and bill payment.

As you guide students through the digital simulation, you’ll share your own life experiences and help them walk a day in your shoes. You bring the program to life.
