Volunteers still needed for REAL Life program at high school Feb. 28 & March 1

Volunteers are still needed to assist Junior Achievement of South Central PA in presenting the REAL Life financial literacy program to Penn Manor High School juniors on February 28 and March 1.

All 11th-graders will participate in the day-long program, which includes activities designed to encourage students to plan for their own economic success.

Please share this volunteer opportunity with friends, neighbors and colleagues who may be interested in helping our students. Here are more specifics on volunteer duties and a direct link to sign up. If Penn Manor cannot enough volunteers, we may not be able to provide this valuable program.

For more information on the REAL Life, contact Shannon Baker, Junior Achievement vice president of program operations, at

REAL Life will include budgeting exercises to help students understand how financial decisions today will impact their lives as young adults. The sessions also will include activities to help students improve their resume writing and interviewing skills.

Volunteers are needed to lead one activity per day as students rotate through different stations in the high school auxiliary gym. Junior Achievement will provide online training and on-site support to all volunteers, and a light breakfast and lunch will be available.

You do not need to be an approved school volunteer to participate.

If you have any specific questions regarding Penn Manor’s program, please contact Kim Marsh at 717-872-9520 ext. 1807.

Please consider volunteering and joining us as we spend the day empowering and inspiring our students!
