Group of kindergarten students with two JA volunteers

JA volunteers help students understand financial “wants and needs”

On Monday, October 22 and Wednesday, October 24, Junior Achievement volunteers visited Eagle Point Elementary School kindergarten classrooms to teach students about financial “wants and needs.”

Through the JA program, local business people, parents/guardians, and community members inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy by teaching them about work readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship.

Last year JA served over 40 DeForest classrooms.  The program can always use additional volunteers to meet the needs of serving over 800 students throughout the district.

Junior Achievement classes are also funded by donations from local businesses, foundations, and individuals.  The cost to bring Junior Achievement to one student is $25. If interested in supporting the program, please visit the online donation website: Support Junior Achievement in DeForest.

To volunteer, please contact our district’s JA Coordinator, Sue Pulvermacher-Alt at
