7. JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT: 

Dear Parents,

We need volunteers for Junior Achievement (JA) lessons. Junior Achievement is a nonprofit organization that aims to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in their futures. Their aim is to help bolster the educational and future success of our students by promoting financial capability, work and career readiness, and business ownership. In the process, volunteers serve as role models helping to positively impact young people’s perceptions about critical life skills, as well as the importance of education.

Parent, community, and business volunteers present JA lessons to students and we need your help getting these lessons into our classrooms. Each grade level has its own curriculum of five to six lessons, each lasting 30-45 minutes. Volunteers typically visit the classroom once per week, although some teachers prefer to have the lessons closer together, or even all in the same day. Lessons tend to work around volunteers’ schedules as well as availability of time to set aside in class. Most teachers are very accommodating to volunteer schedules, as they understand the importance and benefits of Junior Achievement  for our children. Junior Achievement provides all lesson materials at no cost to the school, as well as a 30-minute volunteer training. Once all volunteers are signed up and trained they coordinate directly with the teacher to find dates and times to come into the classroom.

For questions contact the Junior Achievement coordinator for Canyon Crest, Taneezha Cundick, at tgardiner95@gmail.com.

Thanks for your help, Taneezha     If you have any questions, please reach out to our administrative assistant, Sheliah Saluone at sheliahs@provo.edu.   Best,  Canyon Crest   Follow us on Social Media.
