Looking for an opportunity to support Gwinnett students and help prepare them for their future? At Gwinnett’s Junior Achievement (JA) Discovery Center, 6th and 8th grade students participate in an immersive simulation that helps them develop skills to better navigate today’s complex economic environment and discover how decisions made today can have an impact on tomorrow.
No matter your profession, your life experiences qualify you to be a successful volunteer to serve as a mentor and coach for students in these simulations:
- JA BizTown: Students interact within a simulated economy and take on the role of citizen, consumer, and employee. (6th Grade)
- JA Finance Park: Students make the connection between their education and career, career and income, and ultimately their income and future lifestyle. (8th Grade)
This month, we have the need for volunteers on Oct. 16, Oct. 17, Oct. 18, and Oct. 26. Online, find more information and register as a volunteer! Share this volunteer opportunity with friends and family or consider volunteering yourself. Questions about volunteering at the JA center?
