Come along with us on a tour of The Perdue Henson Junior Achievement Center, which will provide experiential learning of financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship to more than 10,000 students each year. JA BizTown is a fully interactive, simulated, free-market facility where students in 5th Grade become business leaders, consumers, and employees for a day. Prepared through in-school lessons of JA curriculum, students work in one of the BizTown enterprises such as banking, city services, insurance; learning what it takes to run a successful business, manage personnel and business finances, and work as a team. Through active participation in the JA BizTown simulation, students develop a strong understanding of the relationship between what they learn in school and their successful participation in a global economy. JA Finance Park teaches middle and high school students about personal finance and career exploration through 13 lessons of in-classroom instruction culminating in a day-long simulation at the facility. Students apply learned concepts in a real-life setting, receiving a "life scenario" which includes a family, job/income, and other pertinent factors.
