JA in a Day involves 1-2 volunteers per classroom teaching lessons related to themselves, families, community, city, region and the nation, depending on grade level.
“I have been recruiting volunteers to teach JA in a Day for more than four years,” said Mindy Sachs, community relations specialist. “The students look forward to this annual event, as do our employees, who return year after year to participate in this educational opportunity.”
