Description:

We are a satellite office of Junior Achievement of Southeast Texas and provide financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programs to K !€“ 12 grade students at no charge to the schools or students.

Annual events include the Dream on the Green Golf Scramble which benefits JASWLA held in October.

We are looking for additional volunteers to teach the programs and teachers to request the programs.

Junior Achievement is the world's largest and fastest-growing non-profit economic education organization. Our programs are taught by classroom volunteers from the business community in your area across America and in over 103 countries worldwide.

Junior Achievement is a volunteer driven, non-profit organization. Each year business professionals, parents, retirees and college students go to our schools to teach Junior Achievement programs. These volunteers use their personal experiences to make the Junior Achievement curricula practical and realistic. Providing children with positive adult role models, illustrate ways to build self-confidence, develop skills and find avenues of success in our free enterprise system.

Our programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.

Junior Achievement Finance Park Program - helps students build a foundation for making intelligent, lifelong, personal financial decisions through hands-on, realistic site-based experiences. The program includes in-school, teacher-led activities culminating in a visit to JA Finance Park and a post-visit assessment.

Our materials include curriculum for elementary, middle and high school students; we serve all public and private schools located within Calcasieu, Cameron, and Beauregard Parishes.
