The Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce and Hillsborough County Public Schools partner with Junior Achievement every year to recruit volunteers for Diploma-See, set for Friday, October 23. Over the past 9 years 2,500 volunteers have provided valuable time and learning experiences with over 25,000 children being positively impacted. This legacy project is one that many organizations embrace to allow their employees to participate in giving back to the community. We need community members to volunteer to present practical information at a critical time in an 8th grader’s life.
This program includes personal finance and the importance of identifying education and career goals based on a student’s skills, interests and values. It demonstrates the economic benefits of staying in school. Training sessions will be held during the month of October to prepare volunteers. No experience is necessary! The training is brief – only two hours – and the in-class experience is half a day. For companies that have 10 employees volunteer, Junior Achievement will offer training to your employees at your location.
