Whitney Ranch residents help Junior Achievement prepare for new school year
Residents of the Whitney Ranch community in Rocklin, in association with FirstService Residential, volunteered with United Way certified nonprofit partner Junior Achievement to help prepare materials for the upcoming school year. Junior Achievement is all about community joining together to inspire students to learn basic concepts of business and economics and how education is relevant to the workplace.
The program sites have “kits” filled with materials that are used by volunteers when leading activities. The kits are costly and at the end of the year, can be mixed and matched after a whirlwind school year and needed to be sorted and put back together in preparation for the next school year. Interested in volunteering with Junior Achievement? They have a great need for many individual volunteers, check out more information here.
Volunteers worked as families at the “Old Ranch House,” the community center for Whitney Ranch to sort and put the kits together. The time saved by volunteers completing these tasks will save the organizations weeks of time doing the same tasks. That time can now be spent on outreach and other tasks that can help grow and build the program. Thank you to the volunteers from Whitney Ranch for stepping up to help out—your time invested will last all school year and beyond! Thank you to Junior Achievement for putting together this opportunity to engage volunteers and bringing all the materials to the community center. Finally, thank you to Whitney Ranch/FirstService Residential for being wonderful community partners.
