What lies beyond your front door? Let's explore it! JA volunteers display a poster of a typical community. Using the poster, students meet some of the people who live and work there. Through hands-on activities, the students learn about workers, the work they perform, why workers are paid, what taxes are and how they are used, and where to save money.
Our Community examines responsibilities and economic opportunities available within a community. See the Scope and Sequence for a complete listing of program concepts and skills.
An informative volunteer handbook is included with each Our Community program kit. For more information about the program, refer to the Program Summary.
Our Community includes a music CD used in Activity 5: Money Moves. Click here to listen to the song or to download for use in class.
