ReadyTalk does JA in a Day

Jessica Nolan is the chair of ReadyTalk’s Charitable Contributions Committee—an employee-drive committee supports non-profit organizations that create a positive impact on the community.

For the second year in a row, 10 ReadyTalk employees visited nearby Brown Elementary School to volunteer for Junior Achievements’ JA in a Day Program. This program utilizes the JA curriculum to facilitate group activities and teach important financial literacy skills and concepts. Employees were paired up and assigned a classroom of 20-30 kids in 1st grade through 4th grade.  

I had the privilege of teaching with Seth Goings, a ReadyTalk engineer, in a 3rd grade classroom with a focus on “Our City.” The students were so impressed when Seth introduced himself and told them that he is a software developer. During the day, we learned about zoning, the characteristics of cities, and how people and businesses in cities manage their money. Each child was able to open their own business, create a budget, and learn the difference between expenses and revenue. My favorite part of the day was when one girl asked, “Will you be visiting again tomorrow? This is so much fun!” To learn more about the organization or to sign up to volunteer visit http://www.jacolorado.org/).
