The JA Kohl's Education Center
The Junior Achievement Kohl's Education Center is home to both JA BizTown and JA Finance Park. The capstone programs give more than 20,000 Wisconsin students the opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship, budgeting, savings, and debt each year.
Elementary School students aren't old enough to drive, work, vote or be the boss. At JA BizTown they are! Students operate a bank, restaurant, city hall, newspaper, retail store and 10 other businesses. This JA capstone program combines in-class learning with a day-long visit to a fully interactive, simulated town. Learn more.
Teens rarely think about buying health insurance, or evaluating investment choices. At JA Finance Park they do! Students are introduced to personal finance and career exploration. They receive family and income scenarios, then visit 19 businesses to purchase things like insurance, clothing, food, transportation, and real estate. They create a budget, allocate utility expenses and make personal investments. Learn more.
