JA BizTown

Elementary school students are not old enough to drive, work, vote, or be the boss. But that doesn't stop them from operating banks, managing restaurants, writing checks, and voting for mayor at JA BizTown. This unique program, designed for 4th-6th grades, combines in-class learning with a day-long visit to a fully interactive simulated town facility.


JA BizTown helps students connect the dots between what they learn in school and the real world. Through the experiential learning process, students are actively engaged in posing questions, investigating, expressing curiosity, solving problems, and assuming responsibility.

The JA BizTown experience helps students:

 - Understand the value of money and doing a good job
 - See the connection between learning and earning
 - Work cooperatively in teams
