Volunteers Needed for Junior Achievement’s YES! Program

September 10, 2019- Elizabethtown Area Middle School will be hosting Junior Achievement’s YES! Program on Tuesday, Nov. 5. On this day, all seventh and eighth graders will participate in engaging career readiness activities. Volunteers are needed to help facilitate these activities. Volunteers work with the classroom of students on one activity as students rotate throughout the day. JA provides all materials and easy-to-follow guides. The time commitment is approximately 7:45 a.m. through 11 a.m. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. To sign up to be a volunteer, contact Junior Achievement at YES@jascpa.org.

The YES! curriculum is intended to help the students gain an appreciation for the importance that financial and career decisions will play in their  lives as young adults. The main emphasis of the career component was discovering the connection between personal interests and strengths, opportunity, and education. As part of the personal finance instruction, the students learned how to establish personal financial goals, the advantages and disadvantages of using debt and credit cards, and the consequences of a positive or negative credit report.
