The ALPFA Michigan Chapter is excited to invite you to a JA in a Day event.

For over 90 years, Junior Achievement (JA) has provided quality financial education to millions of children around the world. Their fabulously well-structured programs teach students key concepts such as financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship -- all crucial life skills in today's economy.

ALPFA Michigan, in collaboration with Junior Achievement (JA), is asking for your support by volunteering alongside our professional and student chapter members. Join us and achieve something truly impactful for our community, while connecting and working with fellow ALPFA members.

Using JA prepared curriculum, you will be paired with another ALPFA member (students and professionals) to deliver a day-long lesson to one elementary class (K-5) utilizing instructional classroom kits, hands-on activities and your experience and knowledge to illustrate concepts so they are relevant and meaningful to the students.
