Junior Achievement Volunteers Needed
Dear Potential JA Volunteer:

Junior Achievement is a program where business people come into the classroom to teach kids about business, using hands on activities and real world business examples. It is a fabulous experience for kids because they see real live business people in action - they get a glimpse of possible business careers plus they develop an appreciation for what goes on behind those big office buildings; how products are priced, how expenses are paid, and how the actions of business can impact the entire community. Depending upon the grade level, kids can build a city and learn about zones, open a newspaper stand and sell advertising, or create a marketing campaign for a new product.

Thanks to the El Segundo Ed Foundation, this year we will be holding the “JA in a Day” program in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades for both Center Street and Richmond Street Schools at your respective school on Friday, February 20 from 8:00am to 3:00pm. Students will meet in their regular classrooms for the day.

To make this a success, we need your help!

We need business volunteers, approximately 2 per participating classroom, to teach the lessons provided by JA. All materials are provided by the JA program. The lessons consist of games and activities designed to teach kids about business. It takes some preparation time in advance and we provide the necessary training. Volunteers should be people who work in a business or profession. It would be an all day commitment for volunteers that day and it would count for any corporate volunteerism programs that might exist at your companies.

Volunteer training will take place on
Tuesday, February 10 from 6pm to 8pm at Center St. School in the Library
Wednesday, Feb 11 from 6pm to 8pm at Richmond St. School Library

You may attend either training and you only need to attend one! It is EASY, FUN, and you will be setting a GREAT example for kids!

A Message from the City of El Segundo
The City is revising the Hazard Mitigation Plan and needs input from the public! Hazard events, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, hazardous materials incidents and fires can happen at any time with little or no warning. In the worst case these hazards can result in death and destruction of property and infrastructure. The work done to minimize the impact of hazards to life and property is called Hazard Mitigation. The City needs your input for the plan revision. We would like to know what hazards concern you as a citizen and what you think the City should be doing to minimize the effects of hazards. There is a survey on the City website for you to provide your thoughts and concerns about preparedness for hazards and future planning efforts of the City.
Please take the time to complete the survey. Your concerns are vital to the plan’s success! The survey is located at Select the article titled City of El Segundo Hazard Mitigation Plan Revision, and click “more”. On the page that opens is a link (called Survey Link) that will bring you to the survey. The survey response will automatically be sent to the Emergency Services Division for inclusion in the hazard mitigation plan revision. Thank you for providing your concerns for the update of the plan.
