Junior Achievement Volunteer Day at La Salle University
Friday, December 6
9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Kids have big dreams but in Philadelphia those dreams stagnate starting in the third grade. The reality is that the disparity between young adults with Postsecondary education and those without is impacting jobseekers more significantly than any other generation before them. Without a Postsecondary degree, young people take longer to find employment, earn 62% less, and are more likely to live in poverty than their more educated peers. If we don’t change their thinking, those statistics will become the REALITY for approximately half of the 12,000 third graders in Philadelphia schools this year.
Your COLLEGE PRIDE can INSPIRE them!
Please join us on December 6 to show our Philadelphia 3rd Graders that they are college material.
Training will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the Dan Rodden Theater.
Campus Tour will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. with four stops.
Check out a video of one of their visits.
Lunch will be provided for all volunteers upon the student's departure.
