Jones Walker Participates in Junior Achievement Volunteer Day
November 25, 2009

On November 19, a total of 19 Jones Walker volunteers, including partners, associates, secretaries, paralegals, and other staff, volunteered their time with Junior Achievement New Orleans. Jones Walker associate Allen E. Frederic, III helped organize volunteers and coordinate the firm's involvement with Junior Achievement.

Volunteers worked with students at Lafayette Academy and were provided training and teaching packets from Junior Achievement to prepare lesson plans. Jones Walker's volunteers educated on several subjects, including different jobs in the community, how an assembly line works, how money circulates around a community, and how taxes help pay for government services. Each class was taught lessons from a grade-specific curriculum, and volunteers worked with students ranging from first grade to fifth grade. At the end of the program, Jones Walker distributed certificates of achievement and provided cookie cake and apple juice for a graduation celebration.
