Why Junior Achievement?
JA BizTown is an experimental learning laboratory for elementary and middle school students that combines 12 hours of in-class learning with a day-long visit to a fully interactive, mock town that simulates the day-to-day functions of thriving communities. The program helps students connect what they learned in school with the realities of the business world and everyday life.
How does it work? The journey to JA BizTown® begins in the classroom where students study the basic economic principles at play in every community.
Students learn to:
- Apply for a job
- How to write checks
- Maintain a check register
- Service an existing customer or recruit a new one
- Become a business owner who creates jobs
