Junior Achievement of North Louisiana

To inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.

Junior Achievement's programs help to develop critical thinking skills and knowledge used in math, science, language arts and social studies. JA provides K-12 students with interactive programs that are designed to teach Elementary students about their roles as individuals, workers, and consumers and Middle and High School students key economic, ethical, and work readiness skills to prepare them to succeed in a global economy. We do this by developing... The desire in young people to stay in school and value lifelong learning. Positive attitudes toward work and contributing to a diverse society. Business/education partnerships that create a bridge between the classroom and the workplace. Our delivery system is differentiated by... Sequential and integrated K-12 programs. Volunteer role models from diverse backgrounds who facilitate JA classroom programs. Experience-based learning. A team of community volunteers, Board of Directors and staff committed to a unified vision. JA's proven programs are presented in our community by business professionals, parents, military personnel, and retirees. These volunteers use their personal experiences to enhance the Junior Achievement curricula relating what students learn in school to the real world. These positive adults model self-confidence and share their belief in the boundless potential of all children and their respect for the talents, creativity, perspectives, and backgrounds of all individuals.

Volunteer for Junior Achievement! JA will provide you with a kit of materials for each program. You will supplement the provided materials with your own knowledge and experiences. However, if you want to take in additional materials that you feel are relevant, feel free! The JA kit comes in the form of a nifty little briefcase filled with everything you need to implement the program. There is a guidebook included for both the teacher and volunteer which includes step-by-step directions of leading the activities. We also provide student workbooks, worksheets, table tents, and certificates of accomplishment. Plus all of the goodies that make up the "fun" stuff: stickers, flash cards, game peices, pens, bookmarks, posters, and so much more! Check out our "Wall" for up coming JA sessions or Call or email the Junior Achievement of North Louisiana office today to discuss volunteer opportunities. 318-861-5998; [email protected]

Mission: Junior Achievement: empowering young people to own their economic success.
