Junior Achievement, an organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy, has just released its list of volunteer openings for February at Finance Park, conveniently located in Central Fairfax.
If you have not been to Finance Park, prepared to be wowed. The facility is impressive and its mission is even more awe inspiring!
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.

Tuesday, Feb. 5, from 9:20 am to 1:20 p.m.
Thursday, Feb. 7, from 9:20 am to 1:20 p.m.
Monday, Feb. 11, from 9:20 am to 1:20 p.m.
