Junior Achievement volunteers needed

Junior Achievement and Nikiski North Star Elementary in Nikiski are excited to put together a JA in a Day event on Nov. 17. Junior Achievement programs align with state standards and teach students the value of workforce readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy. Hands-on, age appropriate curriculum equips students with the knowledge needed to be successful in today’s ever changing global economy. Volunteers are needed for the event. The time commitment varies based on grade level, and will depend on the pacing of each volunteer.
