JA BIZTOWN® AND JA FINANCE PARK®
In partnership with the Fayette County Public Schools, Junior Achievement of the Bluegrass has transformed approximately 13,000 square feet of Linlee Elementary School into an exciting, state of the art facility where students from throughout Central KY will come to experience a living lesson in economics, community, and financial literacy.
JA BizTown® is a community unlike any other¬—one where kids take charge by running businesses, earning paychecks, voting in elections and donating to philanthropic causes. This unique program designed for 5th grade students engages them in the roles of workers and consumers in a series of classroom lessons that culminate in a visit to our fully-interactive simulated town. Our thanks to Veterans Park Elementary for allowing us to film their day in JA BizTown®.
