Kick Off The New Year By Giving Back!
JA BizTown is a simulated workshop located inside the Junior Achievement facility; 4th - 6th graders (primarily 5th graders) run the economy and become producers and consumers for the day. This simulation combines in-class learning with the “real world.” Students have to complete 15 in-class lessons before they can attend JA BizTown. During the visit to JA BizTown each student will be pre-assigned to work in a business. The “citizens” of JA BizTown had to interview for their job prior to their arrival to JA BizTown. Each business will have a CEO and CFO assigned. Students will learn to operate a bank, credit union, restaurant, city hall, newspaper, newsroom, retail store and several other businesses. Each student will be given a debit card, a checkbook and JA BizTown cash.
