WHY JA BIZTOWN?

JA BizTown® is an experiential learning laboratory for elementary and middle school students that combines 9 hours of curriculum delivered in 12 lessons prior to a 4 and 1/2 hour visit to JA BizTown®, a fully interactive, mock town that simulates the day-to-day functions of thriving communities. The program helps students connect what they learned in school with the realities of the business world and everyday life.

WHAT IS FINANCE PARK?

JA Finance Park® is all a financial literacy laboratory that aims to inspire and prepare youth to succeed. There is no question about it: Financial literacy and sound money management skills are essential to success. Today more than ever, young adults need a strong foundation for making intelligent, lifelong, personal financial decisions.
 
To improve the financial literacy of our future business leaders and employees, Junior Achievement has created an exciting reality-based learning environment for middle and high school students.
 
JA Finance Park allows middle and high-school grade students to see, touch, and live the experience of personal finance by basically becoming "an adult for the day."
