How you help A want versus a need. How to balance a checkbook. Don't you wish that someone had taught you those things as you were growing up? We want volunteers that care about not on their future and the people that will be a part of it but specifically want to help the youth have the tools they need to succeed in all aspects.
About us Junior Achievement is a business/Education partnership where volunteers teach students K-12 about the free enterprise system using the pre-designed curriculum. Our mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. At Junior Achievement of Southern Nevada, we provide hands-on experiential programs that teach children in the Clark County School District the key concepts of financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship. Our programs support Nevada State standards, as well as help educate and strengthen the future workforce of our community!
