JA rings up $12,000 through phone calls

Staff Report

Thanks to the enormous support of community businesses and volunteers, Junior Achievement raised $12,000 on Wednesday, calling business to sponsor JA classes in the Roaring Fork Valley.

JA raised not only the financial support, but also volunteers to teach the JA classes.

Junior Achievement will provide more than 60 classes from kindergarten through 12th grade.

These include 37 in elementary schools and 19 in middle school – which includes classes of Economics of Staying in School, to be taught through YouthZone – and five high school classes, two of which are JA Company programs.

JA allows community members the opportunity to connect with students by teaching these programs in the classroom. To find out more about sponsoring a class or becoming a volunteer, please call Robin Tolan at 379-1365.
