Junior Achievement North – St. Cloud area prepares students to be the leaders of tomorrow. JA teaches students in grades K-12 about money management, how to prepare for college and a career, and how to start businesses that create jobs and strengthen our economy.

 

Interested in furthering the JA mission?

 

  1. We are in need of 150 volunteers this spring to teach JA programs in local K-12 classrooms. Can you spare less than an hour as little as once a week? As a JA volunteer, you will visit a classroom for five in-person sessions (30-45 minutes each). All materials and training are provided by JA and come with step-by-step instructions to ensure that your volunteer experience is positive and rewarding. Bonus, you get to spend a little more time with your favorite student and their classmates! No previous experience is needed. You can explore the programs we offer here or you can reach out to erin.brum@janorth.org for a current list of local classrooms in need of a volunteer. Ready to jump in?

International Thank-You Day is celebrated yearly on January 11. It is a day that serves as a reminder that we ought t express our gratitude to those who have made our lives better in some way. What better month to reflect on this than the beginning of the year? We often forget to say, “Thank you,” because we take it for granted or we assume that others know how we feel. This day was founded to recognize the importance of always saying thank you.
