Junior Achievement and CareerSource Pinellas JA Volunteer Opportunities

Junior Achievement is looking forward to your presence in the JA Classroom this spring.  As you may know, Ed Peachey is the Junior Achievement Volunteer Chair and has allowed CareerSource Pinellas Staff the opportunity to inspire our young people this spring.  JA teachers and students welcome each of you to share your life experiences and JA lessons in their classroom.  All it takes is a few hours to make a difference in a child’s life.
