Virtual Volunteering Options
A new range of virtual volunteering programme options are available for the new school year. These programmes retain the benefit of traditional in-class Junior Achievement (JA) programmes while adding extra flexibility for both volunteers and schools.
Expanding the range of options for blended learning – combining traditional and digital methods - allows volunteers to facilitate programmes via classrooms’ interactive whiteboards.
Programmes begin at primary school level, teaching students how they can impact the world around them as individuals, workers and consumers and continue through to second level, right up to age 18, preparing students for their future careers. All programmes are facilitated by volunteers who are fully trained and vetted before commencing and are generally delivered for 30/40mins once a week over 4/5 weeks.
