- Pre-Service teachers will participate in a 90-minute training session for each program they will be supporting as facilitators. Most facilitators will begin supporting 1 workshop series, but may support additional programs based on subject/grade interests.
- Participants will work alongside JA staff to facilitate half-day (4-hour) workshops focusing on financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship.
- Pre-Service teachers should commit to facilitating 4-5 workshops (including preparation, setup, and delivery) as part of the program, with more site visits based on participant availability
- Workshops will be guided by existing Junior Achievement resources, and are aligned to Alberta Education curriculum for each grade level
- As participants become more comfortable with each workshop, they will be encouraged to take on greater leadership roles within the sessions, including leading workshop activities, selecting components from the provided content, and supporting community volunteers who are new to the program
Pre-service teachers need a current Police Information Check with Vulnerable Sector Screening (issued after July 1, 2021). Students who do not already have a police check should begin this process at their local police station as soon as possible, as police checks often take 4-6 weeks to process.
Volunteers will be required to sign a Volunteer Code of Conduct through JA.
