Junior Acheivement Needs You

The purpose of JA is to educate and inspire young people to own their economic success and teach them about the real world! No economic background or teaching experience is necessary—just an interest in being involved in your child’s class.

Here’s all it takes to be a volunteer:

· Attend a 1 hour training session with JA Manager, Roz Malouhos. You are given all the information you need with detailed instructions on how to do it. It’s easy!!

· You’ll arrange five short visits(less than 45 minutes each) with me

Absolutely anyone can volunteer! It doesn’t matter if you are a business professional, college/high school student, stay-at-home expert, retired or self-employed.

Please email Roz Malouhos, JA Rep at or phone 219-263-9843 to participate as the JA volunteer for my classroom. Thank You!
