To a student, you’re not just a volunteer. You’re hope for the future.
Do you remember the first time you had to pay a bill on your own? Balance your checking account? Interview for a job? Now imagine tackling these major milestones without all of the tools and skills you need to succeed. Skills like basic financial knowledge, critical thinking, communication or even confidence.
Many of today’s young people lack the tools and skills needed to tap their unlimited potential and achieve a bright future. That’s the bad news. The good news is you can help change this by volunteering with Junior Achievement. You can make a connection with a student that is rewarding for you and motivating for them by simply sharing your life lessons and showing that you care about their future.
To a student, you’re not just a volunteer. You’re hope for the future. You’re a role model. That is why volunteering for Junior Achievement matters.
