Elementary School Programs
As elementary students get older, their horizons should get broader. JA’s elementary school programs can help as students move from talking about “Ourselves” and “Our Families” in kindergarten and first grades to “Our Nation” by 5th grade.
JA volunteers bring not only the message of the curriculum, but opens children’s eyes to the possibilities for their futures. Many of JA’s students have never met a computer programmer, banker or administrative assistant – and certainly don’t understand the jobs they do or how they can be one! Each JA volunteer brings a different perspective to the classroom, providing children with the important understanding of their role in the world – and how limitless it can be.
Each elementary school program contains five lessons. Lessons are generally taught once a week for five weeks – 30-45 minutes for each lesson.
