Junior Achievement Partnership
The Eller College of Management has teamed up with Junior Achievement of Arizona, Inc. to educate elementary school children on free enterprise, business and economics.
What is Spirit Day?
Spirit Day is a one-day teaching experience in an elementary classroom. Throughout the day, collegiate students facilitate five 20-30 minute lessons with materials provided by Junior Achievement. This curriculum is designed to teach elementary students the relevance of education to the workplace as well as to prepare them for secondary school and lifelong learning.
Who can volunteer?
Any Eller College undergraduate students are encouraged to sign up. Participants earn 10 hours of community service for involvement and the opportunity to directly impact the Tucson community.
Volunteers must be available for the entire day, but are welcome to sign up with a partner. Breakfast will be provided along with light refreshments at the end of the day. All volunteers are encouraged to bring a lunch to eat with the students.
