Junior Achievement of North Florida is still in need of volunteers to join them to teach virtual classes to students in elementary, middle and high school summer camps. The classes will be between 30 and 45 minutes each and will be done through video conferencing. The virtual volunteer opportunities will continue through the end of July.
Locally, JA of North Florida serves Valley Ridge Academy in Ponte Vedra Beach.
Each volunteer will first be given virtual training on the curriculum and best practices for virtual classroom teaching and then can choose from the available classes and times. The classes for high school students will be held on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. Classes for middle school students will be Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3 p.m. and elementary classes will be taught on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:30 p.m. and Fridays at 10 a.m. Volunteers do have the opportunity to teach more than one class.
JA of North Florida has partnered with Sandalwood High School, the Mayor's Youth at Work Program, the Malivai Washington Youth Foundation and Girls Incorporated to provide JA programs during the summer camps. To volunteer, contact Teresa Smith at email@example.com, at (904) 398-9944, extension 227 or visit janfl.org and click on Get Involved.
Virtual volunteers can also share their job story by recording a video, just look for the instructions at janfl.org under the COVID-19 next steps and online resources. There are also additional online resources for students from kindergarten to 12th grade that can be accessed at any time which are primarily independent, interactive student activities.
