We’ve got a very busy Spring ahead of us, with more teachers than ever before requesting the JA curriculum in their classrooms. This is very good news! As always, our goal is to provide every classroom that wants one with a caring volunteer to deliver the JA curriculum. We never want to have to turn anyone away!
If you’ve ever been a JA volunteer, you know what a special experience it is. With just a 5-hour commitment (usually one hour a week over 5 weeks), you get to connect with students, opening their eyes to the possibilities that lie ahead of them. You’re their connection to the world of business, and they look forward to your visits! Volunteers tell us they get as much out of the experience as their students.
We want you to tell your friends about the JA experience, and we even have a little extra incentive for you. When you recruit a new volunteer for April or May, your name will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to the business of your choice (yes– literally any business you want!). Just let Alison know (firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 467-1741) that you’ve referred a friend, and if your recruit completes a JA classroom experience, your name will be entered in the drawing. Yes, your name can be entered multiple times!
Thank you for your support of JA of Lincoln!
