Make a Difference – Volunteer with Junior Achievement
YPF Houston has partnered with Junior Achievement (“JA”) to provide our member base with the opportunity to participate in the Traditional and JA in a Day programs, which educate students about finance and success skills.
These opportunities fit well within YPF’s purpose of serving our community by sharing our knowledge about finance and providing scholarship opportunities. In participating, you will be joining nearly 10,000 volunteers from hundreds of Houston companies making a positive impact on our local youth.
Junior Achievement plans to reach over 200,000 young people during the 2012-2013 school year. With your help, JA can achieve this goal! If you are interested in either of the programs, please contact Garrett Jones at email@example.com.
Traditional Program: 45- to 60-minute sessions over 5-9 weeks
For the Traditional program, you are able to let your schedule with your individual teacher. This allows you to plan around your personal schedule. We are centered at schools within the Loop, but can also look into other schools that are more convenient to your home/work if needed. Volunteers receive training, materials and support from Junior Achievement. You may teach any grade from Elementary through High School, as long as JA has a request. To participate in this program, please contact Garrett immediately, as we need to get classrooms assigned quickly.
JA in a Day Program: 5-hour session on a specific date
(Dates posted to event calendar approximately one month in advance of volunteer opportunities)
For JA in a Day, YPF members will go as a group and teach a Financial Literacy class to High School Seniors. Every student that participates is eligible to apply for scholarships through Junior Achievement. We also plan to offer our YPF scholarship to these students.
