Come and Join the Fun!




At JA World Huizenga Center, two “mini-city” experiential programs, JA BizTown and JA Finance Park, significantly transform how every 5th and 8th grade student in Broward County Public Schools is taught to view the world of work, free enterprise, and his or her possibilities for success.  After 25 hours of curriculum taught in the classroom by the teacher, students will embark on their JA World experience. They will put their classroom instruction to work as they practice decision-making and learn about leadership and teamwork.

Volunteers are needed to help guide students in a specific storefront during their on-site simulation in JA BizTown or JA Finance Park. The time commitment is approximately five hours, but may vary per school schedule. Start time is usually between 7:30am and 9:00am, and the first 45 minutes of the day includes a thorough training.

Background checks are necessary. Please have all required forms filled out one week prior to your volunteer date. These on-site visits will continue daily throughout the school year for every Broward County Public School.
 
Some of the responsibilities of the on-site volunteers include the following:


JA Finance Park (8th graders)

1.    Make sure the students follow instructions on how to calculate their personal budget based on their assigned real life case scenario.
2.    Assist the students in figuring out the necessary amount for each budget item, i.e., food, clothing, housing, etc.
3.    Make sure the students follow their lunch and break schedules.
4.    Help the students clean up their assigned storefront.

            JA Finance Park Online Training:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kE_mITFOOXQ&feature=youtu.be

Tips for your Visit Day

·         All volunteers must arrive at JA World at the time stated on the schedule. 
·         Volunteers should bring a bagged lunch and snacks for the day.  There are no vending machines or facilities to purchase food. Microwaves are not available on the premises.
·         Volunteers should wear comfortable shoes.
·         Volunteers recruited through the school must complete the school’s volunteer security clearance (Star System).
·         Volunteers recruited through Junior Achievement must go through a background check.
·         Students must return to school on the school bus. Parents will not be permitted to take students home from JA World unless authorized by the school’s administration.
·         Junior Achievement and Broward College are smoke-free environments.
