Senior Citizens Day-Rotary Volunteer Opportunity

Junior Achievement Board Member, Jay Rudinger, will present about volunteer opportunities with Junior Achievement of the Brazos Valley. Junior Achievement is a 100-year-old non-profit organization operating in Bryan and College Station schools. It is a great organization to connect Rotarians with volunteerism in schools. 

The mission of Junior Achievement is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.

Our Vision
To be recognized by businesses, educators and policymakers as the thought leader and deliverer of relevant, responsive and innovative programs which build young people's capacity to spur economic development and contribute to New Mexico and America's global competitiveness.

Our Core Values

  • Belief in the boundless potential of young people
  • Commitment to the principles of market-based economics and entrepreneurship
  • Passion for what we do and honesty, integrity, and excellence in how we do it
  • Respect for the talents, creativity, perspectives, and backgrounds of all individuals
  • Belief in the power of partnership and collaboration
  • Conviction in the educational and motivational impact of relevant, hands-on learning

Serving Bryan and College Station schools, the volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th-grade programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential. With the help of our volunteers in the 2016-2017 school year, 1,925 area students developed the skills they need to experience the realities and opportunities of work and entrepreneurship in the 21st-century global marketplace.
