Here’s what’s happening in Southeast classrooms and board rooms …
Junior Achievement, a nonprofit dedicated to teaching children about financial literacy, is in need of volunteer educators at a pair of Harrison School District 2 (D2) schools. The organization needs help with its “JA Exploring Economics” classes at Atlas Preparatory High School and “JA Economics For Success” programming at Fox Meadow Middle School.
Exploring economics involves activity-based lessons that illustrate economic principals behind personal and business decisions. Session times are 8:50 to 10 a.m., although the dates are flexible. The high school is located at 1628 S. Murray Blvd.
The economics for success program, meanwhile, helps students develop their knowledge of personal finance to grow financial management skills. Classes will take place on Mondays at Fox Meadow, 1450 Cheyenne Meadows Road. The times are flexible.
Junior Achievement provides volunteers with the materials, training and support needed to succeed. The next training session is slated for 9 a.m. April 4 at the Junior Achievement office, 611 N. Weber St., Suite 201. For more information, contact Lauren Kunze at firstname.lastname@example.org.
