Description

Join us for a transformative experience at our Chamber IMPACT volunteer session on March 27th, from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm, at the Paychex Junior Achievement Discovery Center. This event offers a unique opportunity to make a meaningful impact on students' lives by bridging the gap between classroom learning and real-world economic scenarios through the JA BizTown experience.

As a volunteer, you will play a crucial role in guiding fourth through sixth grade students through hands-on workplace, business, and personal finance challenges within a simulated city. The JA BizTown experience empowers students to apply their knowledge in a practical setting, fostering a deeper understanding of how our economy works.
