Junior Achievement of Utah, a nonprofit organization that educates school children on business and economics, is looking for more volunteers to donate some time in the classroom for the coming school year.

There are more than 20,000 Utah students in 130 schools expected to enroll in JA next fall. Phil Cofield, JA president, said he has released a public service announcement trying to attract more volunteers.The announcement is aimed at part-time, full-time or retired business professionals 25 years and older who enjoy working with youth. Volunteers are asked to spend one hour per week using JA training and materials to teach the children.

About 690 JA volunteers teach classes already, but there always is a need for more volunteers because the program continues to expand, said a JA spokesperson.
