Prepare to Volunteer

Junior Achievement’s curriculum is designed to be easy and fun to teach. You’ll be provided with a kit that contains everything you’ll need to teach all the lessons in a grade level. We encourage you to review the guide book that accompanies your kit, as well as all the materials included in the kit.
