Junior Achievement is a non-profit organization that teaches financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship skills.

We have programs for students in K-12th grade. Most of our programs are taught by the community and corporate volunteers and are provided at no cost to the schools. All of our volunteers receive training and materials prior to working in the classroom. Volunteer opportunities range from a one-hour session to a traditional program that may be taught one hour a week over the course of a few weeks. Please note, that most of our volunteer opportunities happen during the school day or during an after-school program.

JA is supporting Castro Valley High School's Career Fair on March 9. We are hoping to have several careers across career clusters! I have included the details below and have attached a flyer.
