Junior Achievement Campaign to build the future
Campaign to Build the Future
through JA BizTown®
Enhancing Junior Achievement's already impressive impact on students in this region, bringing JA BizTown to the Pittsburgh region will allow fifth grade students from Western Pennsylvania to apply JA classroom curricula and principles of earning, saving, and managing finances. To benefit the future of Pennsylvania, JA BizTown programming will reflect this region's present and future workforce needs and economic realities. Most importantly, these unique career and personal finance simulations will allow students to gain insights with real, rather than theoretical, experiences and active, rather than passive, learning.
Junior Achievement will construct a 40,000 square-foot JA Education Center, comprised of JA BizTown and JA Finance Park, in a to-be-determined accessible location in the Pittsburgh region.
