Junior Achievement of North Florida offering JA programs live online

April 13th, 2020 · Leave a Comment

Junior Achievement of North Florida is offering new resources to allow kids to spend more time planning and dreaming about their tomorrow.

Each week, JA program coordinators or virtual volunteers are teaching JA programs live on Instagram. Parents and students can follow JA of North Florida’s Instagram page at @janorthflorida to take part in the lessons.

The lessons are held each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 10 a.m. Every Tuesday, the programs are for elementary age students. On Wednesday, the programs are for middle school students and on Thursday, high school students can log on for programs designed for them.

April is Financial Literacy Month and each lesson in April will be dedicated to the topic of financial literacy. The topics for the live lessons in May will focus on work readiness. Each lesson will be approximately 30 minutes.

The live recordings will be saved for review on Junior Achievement of North Florida’s Facebook page, just click on the video section, and also will be posted on the JA of North Florida website. Visit janfl.org and click on COVID-19 next steps and online resources.

JA of North Florida has additional online resources for elementary, middle and high school students that can be accessed at any time which are primarily independent, interactive student activities on financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. The resources are posted under the COVID-19 next steps and online resources.

Volunteers can become a virtual volunteer and lead a live lesson. Volunteers will be assigned a classroom to deliver the 30-minute program. If live volunteering is not an option, JA is asking virtual volunteers to share their career experience with students by recording a video.

JA is seeking volunteers to share their “job story” to 1) provide students with a broadened spectrum of jobs in North Florida while also giving guidance, reassurance, and perspective during this pandemic; and 2) provide teachers with a free online resource, easy to assign and easy to assess.
