I've been a JA volunteer for the past few years and I can honestly say that my experiences as a teacher have been more rewarding than I ever could imagine. The programs are so easy to present and the... kids have a lot of fun while learning about things that aren't in their textbooks because it's your life and business experiences that you're bringing to the table. I can't imagine my life without being involved with Junior Achievement. For those who don't want to get into the classroom, there are other ways to be involved. Just take the first step and I promise...you won't ever be sorry. See More
