    Junior Achievement Coming to Lake Crystal - Volunteers Needed!
    Junior Achievement’s mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. JA’s volunteer delivered programs provide students with financial literacy, entrepreneurship skills and work readiness lessons. With hands-on activities, students will gain a significant understanding of economics and business concepts.
    Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial Elementary School is looking for volunteers to help in the classroom. The JA volunteer will volunteer five times for 35-45 minutes each session. No experience is necessary and the training and curriculum will be provided. If you have a passion for helping children succeed, this is a great opportunity for you to volunteer!
    Looking to volunteer? Please contact Katie Katie@jaum.org.
    Chamber businesses: Invite the JA District Coordinator to come to your business speak about getting involved with Junior Achievement and the volunteer opportunities we have available! Please contact Katie at Katie@jaum.org.
