Volunteers Needed: Junior Achievement of Central Maryland

Mon, 05/21/2018 - 11:13am

We have been fortunate enough to be able to bring Junior Achievement of Central Maryland to LRHS on June 1st as part of our financial literacy unit in American Government.  They will be running a personal finance simulation where students will create a budget based on a scenario.  We are looking for a few volunteers to sit at a table and help students understand their options- for example one table is transportation.  Options include purchasing a bike, taking the bus, purchasing a used car, purchasing a new car, etc.   Students will need to look at their scenario and their budget and choose an option that fits with their particular budget scenario.  The role of the volunteer would be to help students think through the pros and cons of each option.
