Have you ever met a 10 year old CEO? Stop by JA BizTown and you will!
JA BizTown is a community unlike any other; one where kids take charge by running businesses, earning paychecks, voting in elections and donating to philanthropy. This unique program designed for 4th-6th grades, engages students in the roles of workers and consumers in a series of classroom lessons that culminates in a visit to our fully-interactive simulated town. Students learn entrepreneurial and personal finance skills while they work and shop in their own vibrant community. Through this experiential learning process, students develop a strong understanding of the relationship between what they learn in school and their successful participation in our global economy.
Junior Achievement actively seeks funding for this half-million dollar program. Click here if you would like to donate! We also accept donations of various consumable items that we use in our daily simulations. Click here for a full list of items we currently need.
