JA More Than Money Training Videos

JA More than Money introduces third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade students to financial literacy and entrepreneurship, and to social studies learning objectives that include money-management skills, goods and services, and global markets. Through hands-on activities and a JA cast of characters serving as symbols for financial literacy and entrepreneurship concepts, students will learn a practical approach to starting a business and making smart decisions about managing money.

  • Following participation in the program, students will be able to:
  • Identify the role of money in everyday life.
  • Think like entrepreneurs and identify a small business they can start.
  • Learn the basic steps of starting a business.
  • Consider the advantages and disadvantages of borrowing money.
  • Explore the opportunities of global markets.
The program is volunteer-taught and kit-based, and can be implemented either Classroom-Based or JA AfterSchool. It includes five 45-minute sessions, with additional extended learning activities and optional digital assets offered throughout.
