“If you enjoy teaching, coaching, or working with kids, JA is a great outlet. In addition to a captive audience, you have a great curriculum that is provided for you and supportive teachers who allow you to be yourself, or kindly redirect you if you get off track.” -Parker Ridgely, JA Volunteer
JA Finance Park is a 7,000 square foot mini city located in American Furniture Warehouse in Thornton. As a JA Finance Park volunteer, you will teach kids about budgeting in an immersive simulation. No advance preparation is necessary, and training occurs on site.
“I think they’ll really take the hands-on experience with them, being able to look at money, practice using it, to know what it looks like to move it. Because we can do that in a workbook all day long, but for them to have their own personal account and be able to make those decisions…that’s what they’re going to remember.” – Claudia, Alameda International Teacher
