Prior to serving on the JA Board of Directors, I volunteered as a JA teacher and began teaching the elementary school programs to my daughter's class as she moved from 3rd through 6th grade. When I learned about the Economics for Success program, she moved on and I was hooked. I continued to teach the program to 6th graders and then to 9th graders. I can't think of a better way to provide such critical information to students that will prepare them for the "real world" after High School. I feel that I am making a difference by helping them understand more about what is available to them and how best to utilize and develop their talents and skills. The finanicial awareness provided opens up the students' minds to what they should and should not do with their hard-earned dollars. JA's programs are excellent and created with both the volunteer and student in mind. My daughter recently taught a 4th grade class and loved it!
